Don’t Think About It, Do It! Add LED Accent Lighting Everywhere.

This ‘Make Every Week’ post by John Keefe is simple: add DIY accent lighting using LED strips, barrel jack, and a battery. Simple! When I moved into my new apartment ~2 years ago I thought about what lighting I wanted where. Then a year went by and I realized I was still thinking about it, so instead I started doing it.

Now I have accent lighting wrapping my bathroom vanity mirror, installed inside my ‘altar of awesome’ glass display case of trinkets, even around my door’s peephole, along with specialty cabinet & drawer lighting.
