Cheap yet chic stair lighting

i call this one hack of a sexy stair lighting. simon says “putting lighting into our entry stairs has proven rather, err, problematic. I haven’t managed to electrocute myself trying to fit traditional lights, but it can only be a matter of time…

… it was sale time, and they [ikea] were clearing out some of the christmas lighting. that’s when we saw it. several metres of electroluminescent wire (with mains transformer) for a crazy price – only £1.99.” and after some tinkering … “we now have a rather attractive and rather different lighting source for the stairs. not so bright as to dazzle, but more than enough to stop people from killing themselves on their way out of the house.”

love it. love it. love it. link
