LED Display Shelf

Mr 5 loves lights! And I mean loves them. He has numerous night lights, grow clocks, torches, lanterns and garden lights around the house. Every trip to Bunnings involves a stroll through the lights section.

A few months ago I thought it would be a good idea (my wife didn’t think such a good idea) to buy a remote controlled LED strip off Ebay.

We’ve taken a while to sort out what to do with it, but today at much insistence from Mr 5 we found a place for them. He has a 4×4 Expedit bookshelf in his room. So as an incentive we said if he tidied it up and made a display shelf out of one level, then I would stick the lights to the back of the shelf to light it up for him.

The results are pretty good, and he absolutely loves it! Total cost about $8 🙂
