Elie modifies an Alve Drawer unit modified to accommodate her cable box.
She says, “We needed a place to keep files and were limited in terms of space. Alve fit the bill but not our style. I sanded and painted in a high gloss black and had my contractor, Geronimo, build me cover and make a drop down door to conceal the cable box.”
The Korrekt handles were added to complete the look.
