garage door bookcase

Niiiiiiiiiice: Robert Crais’s garage door, painted to look like bookshelves. Thanks, BoingBoing!

Something else I like about this shenanigan: the fact that Cory Doctorow at BoingBoing says he doesn’t have a Facebook account so he can’t confirm the Facebook appearance of this image. I am getting a bit peeved at the Facebookiness of everything. If I can possibly help it I try not to link to Facebook stuff, but sometimes people — and institutions! —  upload images there and nowhere else. That seems like a mistake, to me. Use your own website! Don’t depend on Facebook for everything! You never know what Facebook is going to do in the future with your stuff or you.

    Great point about facebook. As big as it is, you don’t know what will happen to it in the future. It is wise to own your own data!

    I love the idea of using your garage door as an opportunity to express yourself through art. Though this may not be appropriate in some neighborhoods, there are some neat products on the market that can really “dress up” a garage door.

    Thanks for sharing this.
