Light in the Box

Light in the Box
Dionne wasn’t feeling this worn out dresser in its naked and weathered state.  Which is a good thing.  I try to avoid feeling things that are naked and weathered, as a general rule.  She brightened it up with a crisp blue and green paint job and removed those chunky clunky doors that were weighing it down.  But as if that wasn’t cool enough, she added pot lights inside!  See how they light up in the last picture?  I bow to your awesomeness, Dionne.  See it on her blog The Turquoise Iris.

    Looove it! It had such great bones, albeit “old and weathered,” but I’m not surprised it turned out like it did — though I wouldn’t have thought of removing the doors. Great idea!

    Naked and weathered sounds like a description of the old guy hiking Camelback yesterday. (Okay, so he had on a loincloth)

    Wow, this is awesome! One of my favorites. I liked the before; I think I would have been fine with it and never would have considered how much more awesome that piece could be.
