    Default BALLY "XENON" pinball cabinet art, what to do with it

    Another old pic rediscovered this afternoon. [don't know why it got attached as a thumbnail to my ROCK pinball thread, I didn't mean for it to go there too...??]

    One afternoon several years ago I came across the playfield cabinet (only) of a BALLY XENON machine, sitting by someone's front curb with the trash. Right around the block I went to retrieve it, turns out the actual homeowner was on his porch and helped me load it up. [also mentioning that its backpanel had been there with it when he'd cleaned out his garage the previous afternoon, but that somebody else had apparently come along and took just that part of it in the meantime... ]

    Anyways, figuring it'd be next to impossible to actually find another (without having to buy a complete 2nd machine, that is) I eventually parted it out on eBay. When all that remained was the (large, and perfectly useless otherwise) wooden cabinet itself I still couldn't bring myself to just toss it in the dumpster, so I beat it to pieces with a big hammer so's to keep the cabinet sides and their awesome graphics.

    And thus my reason for showing 'em here...WHAT SHOULD I DO WITH 'EM???

    After seeing a few pics of all y'alls 'game rooms', mebbe I should just find a (big?!) wall to hang one on 'as-is'...? Then there's the obvious 'build a bar/coffee table' but I already have too many coffee tables, as well as other fancier wood panels if I'd actually make an attempt to build a bar...??

    wall art for sure. And if you don't want them, someone else will definitely want them at $100/each

    $100/ea.??? REALLY???!!!

    D*mn. They sure need to be somewheres other than stacked against the wall in a storage closet then, don't they...?

    So's I got to looking around the house. And 'ya know, most of my walls are already reasonably full (go figure?!) even for just one of them. BUT WAIT I says to myself glancing out the kitchen window into the carport -- *there's* a spot they might fit, over those storage doors...??

    So's WALL ART they now officially are. Protected from weather/direct sunlight even though they're 'outdoors', and located so I can now enjoy looking at 'em every time I glance out the kitchen window. That last pic shows the serial number stamping on the LH side, evidence that these are the remains of machine #EXE11815.
