We’ve all agreed that we’d like to see every dull, boring, grey/gray power boxes painted something else and I found several I really liked while walking in downtown Aurora, Illinois with my friend who was willing to patiently wait while I took photos. 🙂 I especially like this first one because the colors are so arresting. Anyone else get a bit of a “Matrix” vibe?

I was loving the Art Deco look of this pair.

And finally here’s another power box for your Thursday enjoyment. Here we are already in December. How did that happen??

    Great idea to paint the power boxes, turning an eyesore into something of interest. Fab Art Deco doors!

    Those art deco doors are very swish, Janet.

  3. I also think it’s a great idea to paint the power boxes

    These are great examples of making these drab, albeit necessary boxes a welcome part of the landscape. We are just starting to see this happen in Hartford. I hope to collect some photos to share in 2023 – yes, how did that happen, Janet?

  8. The top one reminds me of being under the sea. I love those colors.

    Just bought some batik fabric in those colors. They are pretty vibrant together 🙂

    Have actually researched a little bit to see if I can cover the one at the corner of our yard. A southwest natural looking cover would be nice and then I would put some plants on top so it appears to be a pot. I love the first one.

    We have lots of painted power boxes, tel boxes, etc. It does make the city look much neater. The middle doors are terrific, Janet!
