LED powered Lack shelf

Materials: Ledberg, Lack Shelve

Description: Simple LED lights behind the Lack, it slides all the way to the wall. But I find it’s missing a next LED on top.

    I’m thinking of doing the same thing, adding a LED light to the lack shelve. As I have placed a singular module switch in a 2 module encasing inside the wall I hope I can solder and “re use” the original adapter and hide it next to the switch. The already routed cables will be soldered with the original connector to simplify the connection. I was wondering how I would be able to mount the led inside the shelve but seeing this I think I got the best sollution. Thanks for your idea.

    Heeeel mooi!!
    But I would like to know what you did with the cables. Did you let them hang down? Cause I think it’s really beautiful, but I have lack shelves for my cats to walk on, so I don’t want them to play with the cables-.-
    Did you find a solution for that??

    Groetjes uit Enschede;)
