Look what I just found via CRAFT!
Here are instructions on how to create your own Toothbrush Laboratory, i.e. a handmade, custom, and possibly steampunky bathroom accessory by deciduous soul.
  
 

I envision all kinds of fun modifications to this project, and the test tubes are just brilliant. You could easily do a version of this in brass or copper with mechanical imagery in the background or various bits of metal ephemera like hinges and old keys. Genius!

I think I may have to do something like this, now. =P

DIY stuff is really kind of fantastic, and beats the hell outta going to various pretentious chic stores for cool things. ^_^

Oh definitely. I love reappropriating test tubes for nefarious plottings. We've used a set in a wooden rack as shot glasses at a party in the past. :D

Haha. Fantastic ~

I'm hoping to head up to the Ren Fair in Bristol, Wisconsin, not this weekend but weekend following and see if there's some deliciously steam-punky things to appropriate into some sort of fantastic DIY projects. :D

Oh, that's totally awesome. My roommates don't even get a say in this(though they like steampunk anyway), but that's going in our bathroom.

My dad works in a hospital, too, and he's always willing to snatch things for me.

love it!
Just catching up on the forum after a nice vacation -- This is fabulous!!! I think we actually have some testtubes around, so I need to make this! (And then post about it on my blog thesteampunkhome.blogspot.com.)
