Cheap Ambient Lighting

My wife and I were at Target a few days after Christmas and stumbled upon some great Christmas decoration lighting priced (I believe it was) at 75% off. Normally, I don’t really care about that kind of stuff but when I saw this at around $2:


I couldn’t pass it by. Not because I wanted to use it for Christmas in the coming years but because of other (geeky) applications. I mean, come on, cheap, battery powered, LED lighting that can be used anywhere. How can you NOT pass it up? My idea was to use it in my home office for some ambient lighting around my desk. As you can see below, it didn’t turn out too bad.

And this is what it looks like under my desk using Bulldog Hardware Stic Mount Hook & Loop velcro adhesive strips for the battery pack and clear packing tape for the wire with an additional wire hanging behind my monitors.


Like I said, geeky.
