I did mine for a newspaper shop. In fact, it was so good, I showed it to two, and one of them bought it.

It managed the store records(numbers etc) of items, customer details for newspaper deliveries and a employees payment system. I also now manage the system for them(look after the hardware and software side) and built a website for them. My database also was connected to the website - customers could order for the site.

It really all does depend on what you are interested in. Databases and GUIs can be used for *almost* anything - if you want to spend the time developing it.

You may as well ask for a wood-working project that uses a hammer and a screwdriver.

However some ideas - in sort of ascending order of difficulty (i think) :

1) A simple system to track your CD and DVD collection.
2) A simple system to track your books.
3) A simple system to track something else you collect
4) A system to track, report and compare the results and performance of individual member in a local sports team (bowling is relatively easy).
5) A simple library system for a local club.
6) A system to maintain a sports league creating a schedule of matches, recording results and producing the league tables
7) A Genealogical database so that you can record your family tree.
8) A Gui that makes creating databases easier

And anything else that takes your fancy.

Another idea is a programm that keeps track of the accounts for your home or a local group etc tracking income, expenditure, regular payments, cheques etc, and can report on what money you spend and where your major outgoings go.

Another idea is to build a Database that can manage DKP (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dragon_kill_points). When I played WoW, I had the idea to build one on my own, but never did it.

Years ago I did a fantasy football site and ran it for a group of friends, which is a similar idea. It was a pain updating it with the scores every week but it was fun.

I'm working on an evolution simulator. It creates populations of organisms in multiple environments, handles mutation, reproduction, fitness, and mortality, and can store an arbitrary percentage of those as "fossils". That allows the changes in the DNA and traits to be tracked over time and analyzed.

It's not C#, though.
