I got blue, black and white paint from Home Depot. I also got painters tape, dropsheet and brushes from there. It took about a week to complete because I only had time to paint in the evening after school.
Planning the dimensions was crucial! Measure out your door and make up a sketch ahead of time.
DOOO WEEEEE DOOOOOO

In the original series, in the episode "Logopolis", Tom Baker's 4th Doctor is trying to measure the dimensions of an actual police box so he can fix the chamelon circuit. He materializes the TARDIS around another TARDIS (as does The Master), which leads to several comical scenes, including an officer trying to make a call from the phone. This is also how Tegan Jovanka becomes a companion of The Doctor, as her aunt's car breaks down and she enters the box thinking she will find help. (Of course, if the phone is on the outside, and the box is for holding a prisoner, why would she be going inside. Alas, it spoils all the fun to point plot holes in Doctor Who).

I did laugh when I read the "Pull to open" on the notice, pretty sure this is a push to open door... Other than that, nice work! (And I do know that that's what it actually says, just found it amusing)
On the episode "The Doctor's wife" when the TARDIS is put into a human woman, she calls the Doctor stupid because he never reads the sign on her door that clearly says "Pull to open". However the sign is not referring to the main door but for the separate phone door. On old Police Boxes, the panel the sign is on opens out to expose a public use phone to call police and for police to call in. The box its self was designed to lock up a suspect till a wagon could pick them up.

In the episode "The empty child" the 9th Doctor opens the door to answer the phone it rings, and gets the creepy "are you my mummy?" message. He asks the boy how he's calling since its a fake phone in a fake phone box.
Guess you haven't noticed the "real" tardis is exactly the same.

Oh, the finished door is wonderful!

Do you have any more details of what you did - dimensions, paint-mixing, the order you did things etc?
