First, foremost, and most importantly, we should establish the fact that downtime and I are not a pretty pair. When boredom kicks in, power tools and hot glue are my best friends and we tend to wreck shit. Sunday night following True Blood, I was too wired off of honey whiskey to sleep and simply tired of watching television. In my basement there sat 4 old console type,televisions (you know the kinds with the heavy protruding asses, long before the days of flat screens) three of which no longer worked.
Long story short, I made a mini bookcase out of a mini television set.
I can sum up the entire process in three steps:
A. Remove every screw that you can see
B. Pull the two halves apart and disconnect any wiring connecting the screen to the electrical board
C. Wipe down the inside of the frame and within it place whatever the hell you fancy

I chose to use it as a bookcase but we can all pretty much agree that the likelihood of it staying that way forever is very low. I may mount it on the wall and put a small plant inside....or maybe I will buy a larger square bowl and use the frame as a border for my fishbowl. Hummm, just saying those out loud is making my muse tingle.
And now a few closing shots....
Yes, that is a orange lava lamp and my iPhone headset (so cute)...

Randomness is my kind of wonderful,
