Light up Pax





1-doorlight-744997

Materials: Pax Fevik wardrobe door, Glänsa light chain

Description: I had seen this hack and thought it looked really cool.

Fortunately I stumbled upon a Pax Fevik door in the bargain corner, a bit big at 2.35 m but at a really good price. I got a Glänsa light chain, 8 m and 144 lights to turn the door into a lamp.

Got home and tested out how to fit the long chain in the door and decided go with vertical lengths. I used some steel wire and the bottom to keep it straight and close to the glass, and some cable clips at the top.

The tinted glass gives a nice cozy light in the room and I am super satisfied!

    This would be pretty cool mounted on a wall horizontally as well.
