Ever wish you could create a light source where you have no window? Well, you can! Here is a great idea for anyone who wishes they could have a window over their kitchen sink or anywhere else, but can’t – for example, maybe it’s not an exterior wall. Here’s a simple project that create a light source where none existed:
Start with a light box the size of your desired “window”. You can make your own light box using simple wood scraps, nails and glue. Decorative wood molding adds a personalized touch.
Install a fluorescent light source inside your box — compact fluorescent light bulbs are perfect because they produce very little heat but they offer a bright light.
Instead of a pane of glass, slip in a transparent photo of your favorite view, or create a piece of stained glass artwork that will be showcased by the light from behind it.
Presto! You’ve got a room with a view! And best of all, you’ve just created a bright, sunny light source where you have no window.
