The other day I got off work and noticed a number of these wooden candle lanterns on the curb waiting for their ride to the landfill. So I took them… of course.
Our bedroom has boring track lighting above the bed and to my luck, the wooden lanterns happened to sandwich perfectly between the lighting case and the track.
I gold-leafed the inside rim of the lanterns, which made them look like intentional lighting treatments as opposed to discarded lanterns.
Someone’s trash turned out to be just what our bedroom needed.
