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.
