We have a big ole shelf in our kitchen that I made out of a board I found in the garbage, but because its so big, it is kind of dark under it. It’s also far away from any outlet, so I had to get creative with the power supply.
In the end I went with some mason jars, and some battery powered LED lights.
the house is slanted, the shelf is level.
some cheap, but nice looking Chinese LED lights.
a couple wide mouth mini-mason jars.
drill a hole in the middle of every lid.
get some wood screws
pardon the flash photos…like I said its dark under there.
All done, just sorta eyeballed the placement.
I just counted the number of LED’s per string, and divided by the number of jars. I covered the lights not in the jars with black tape…I am not sure if I like the look, but I can always just take it off if I want.
It’s very nice looking, a soft yellow light, and it does a good job of lighting the space under the shelf.
Total cost for the whole project was about 25$ Took about 30 minutes.
