So I am all settled into my dorms and I brought this along! I know you’re thinking candles aren’t dorm legal (and you’re right). Lucky for me, this is a light cleverly disguised as a candle! It even flickers!
Look, I love candles. I look forward to thunderstorms and power outages. I like to read Poe by candlelight, flickering creepiness, and I was probably a lot like Tim Burton’s Vincent as a wee little lass. Not being able to bring candles to my dorm was a bummer, but this was an awesome solution. Also, skulls. GUYS. Skulls. <3
These lights (as well as others) are available on www.thegoodlifeoncampus.com!
Bored this summer? Build a TARDIS!
Infinitely faster than growing one.
Making a Simple Tardis Bookcase =============
~ $60 + 15 hours (lots of it in between waiting for paint/ wood glue to dry)
bill of material:
1. structural (use screws)
2 pcs - 11.25” x 0.75” x 18” (sold as 11.5” by 1”, cut to 18” at HomeDepot)
4 pcs - 11.25” x 0.75” x 36” (sold as 11.5” by 1”, cut to 36”)
24+ pcs - I used #6 x 1.25” (anything #6 - #10 and 1”+long would be fine)
1 pcs - 19” x 36” (backboard; can be cut from big 4’ by 8’ of of thin plywood)
2. top decoration (use wood glue)
2 pcs - 3.5” x 0.75” x 12” (sold as 3.75” by 1”, cut to 12”)
1 pcs - 3.5” x 0.75” x 19.5” (sold as 3.75” by 1”, cut to 19.5”)

3. fine decoration (use wood glue)
6 pcs - 31.75” x 2” (cut from big plywood sheet)
12 pcs - 2.625” x 2” (same plywood. * I used 11/32” thickness, but any works)
4 pcs - 2.625” x 1” ( just break two of above into 4 pieces)
4. For the top tardis alarm light, I used a PVC pipe connected to a pipe cap
5. your choice of blue spray paint + wood glue
You can buy all these from HomeDepot, and get most of them cut for free there as well. Pictures are worth a thousand words, so I made some CAD drawing for anyone who wants to try this as a weekend project. Good Luck and Cheers!
