Lighted Glass Shelves

Lighted Glass Shelves Surround Archway

After building this archway with surrounding glass shelves, I decided it needed some lighting.  I wanted something very thin and subtle, so as to hardly show when not turned on.  Custom LEDs fit the bill!  I used Warm White SMD LED Modules Mini (item #SMD3528WW Mini), with three modules mounted on each of eight metal washers (a total of 24 LED mini modules).  The washers were adhered to the bottom of the glass shelves using a double-sided clear adhesive product.  I used garage door opener wire because it is thin but stiff (being single strand copper), and painted the wire to match the surrounding walls. 

 

Really, the only trick was fishing the wires down through the wall spaces, which involved using fishing line with a sinker, to lead the way down (and lots of patience).  The top lights have a diffuser on them (taken from $3 night lights).  I bought an automotive electrical switch to turn the lights on and off (it is mounted in one of the adjacent bottom cabinets).  And a 12V DC adapter completed the electrical requirements. 

 

The LED modules provide a soft glow over the plants, artwork, and walls, and really accentuate the archway.  I appreciate U.S. LED Supply for their assistance with my project. 

 

Sincerely,
