Do you know how dark in night? When there’s no sun in the sky, and moon barely seen under cloudy veil?
In such nights, you would consider buy some cheap night light, to shed some beams on your bedroom.
Or, you could think of making night light by yourself. As you know, hand-made stuff are priceless and could bear value through ages and generations!
Of course, my night light is no such great value, but it’s very unique
First of all, you need some border. I ordered one, with exact size that I need.
It look like this (without back and glass here):
Then, I ordered 5 meters of LED and power supply. It was looking like this:
As you can notice, led strip is winded on some kind of spool, similar (or same) as could be used in storing films.
To perfectly fill back with leds, I cut them by exact pieces, and draw area for placing them.
Each section of led strip is 5 cm long and contains 3 leds. I made it square fill (3 strips runs from up to down in each 5 cm of width).
Also, I soldered in parallel both sides of composition; On this side all strips have connected in parallel «+» connector, on that side — respectively «-«.
The border itself will have power supply connector, it leads to internal connector (stolen from burned PC power supply’s fan).
Other connector I soldered on rear side:
Next, is light filter and glass. I used 200 g/m2 paper as an light filter, and two glasses as form-makers.
At this picture you can see almos completed Night Light, with glass-picture-paper-glass installed, and ready to take light in.
You could guess now what kind of picture will be there, if I need heavy paper as a light filter. Of course, it’s not ordinary picture.
I say, if you take a lot of such pictures in a row, it could kill you!
Almost forgot, you need such tiny furniture, to make your Night Light hang above your bed. I mean my bed.
And, voila, it’s hung and ready to shine!
Beware, nightmares, here is my X-Ray Night Light!
P.S. If you interested, it cost me (w/o x-ray itself) for about 45 Euro, and it’s power source is 24 W. Night Light is without any fan or cooler and it’s not even warm. An power cord is hanging near left side (I forgot to take such picture), but it’s fine with me.
