Backlit nightstands

Materials: Effektiv door, Branas,

Description: I got two milk-glass doors in the As-Is section, put them on top of Branas baskets where I had installed the Inreda lights beforehand. Now I have two beautiful nightstands with some storage room inside (for books etc.) for less than 45euros.

    “Looks nice, but how are they mounted?” Hughhh wondered to himself before realising, “oh, they sit on the floor with the glass side up!”

    I think they’re more “bottom lit” (!) than back lit. :P

    Looks nice, but is this fire hazard safe?
