Shoebox Pedestal

Upon learning that I likened their creation of my new closet to Mr. Big’s wedding gift to Carrie Bradshaw in the 2008 film Sex and the City, green builder Shelter Alternatives outdid New York.

While making a box for the shift of the heating and air conditioning register from the floor to the wall, Shelter Alternatives heard me call it a “shoebox pedestal.”  Trim befitting a movie star appeared.  Picture perfect painting, of course, by Jeff Proco.

I love it.
