I already have a light box so to speak - however it is on an upright angle so we are limited to what we can do on it.
We really like it – but there is so much more that can be explored on a flat table. However to purchase one is quite expensive. I have seen many cool light tables created by some of the great bloggers out there, but I tried to make one and I didn’t like my results – so I have now created one of my own designs.
…and so did the slider! Thanks handy hubby! J
Then I marked the inside of the drawer where I wanted mini shelf brackets to go. These are going to hold up my Plexiglas.
Then hubby drilled the holes.
However a very nice man at a Plexiglas company donated a new piece! J
So I covered them with tacky paper as well! This time wood grained pattern.
I popped in a tap light for now – but there will be a stronger one in later – but the overall look is awesome! J
The entire light box cost me:
- $2 for the drawer
- $5 for the brackets
- $8 for the broken Plexiglas (next time I will just beg for free to begin with)
- $2 for tacky paper.
I am NOT endorsing the company where this product is sold - but this light socket would work awesome as well - they are sold at most craft stores to go in Christmas decorations etc. They have an on and off switch as well.
