All I have is an idea (And a love of instructables) Answered
Hello dear Instuctablists,
You can't see me, but I am down on one knee. It's intended to show my deference to you.
Well, we just finished rebuilding the ground floor of my house and there's now a big, deep-ish rectangular space above the toilet (about 70cm x 50cm and 15 cm deep). I was looking at it the other day, and had an idea for what I would like to put there that made me laugh out loud.
The trouble is I have NO IDEA how to make it. Not only that, I can't think of any search terms that are leading me to 'how to' videos. In short all I have is an idea and no clue how to even begin making it.
So, here's my idea.
What I want to make is what appears to be a framed picture of two velvet curtains.
BUT when you flush, the curtains draw back (like at the theatre) to reveal a small scene inside. Lights come on, some music plays, little toys/characters/puppets appear and then ten seconds later, the curtains close and that's that.
In other words and automated, electronic, toy theatre.
So what I'm asking is either
a) If you have any idea where I should start with this could you tell me where
b) If the end product sounds like something you'd like to see exist and you know how to make it, do you want to mentor me? (We could turn it into a YouTube video/series, do it over Skype or if you're in/near London, UK meet up IRL).
Maybe I'm over-reaching in the help stakes, but every time I look at that blank piece of wall, I think: try.
Any help gratefully received. Even if you can't help, thanks for reading this.
(Also, I can't work out how to turn that picture round either. Sheesh. This whole thing is a TALL order)
