In continuation with Kids Room posts, here is another fun idea that we did for our children’s bedroom. We wanted some fun night lights but did not get anything we liked, so we DIY-ed our own. We used the basic IKEA Solvinden lights (string of 8) with a solar panel, like this:
Then we took some paint and my son went to work on them to take the white out and make them look like this:
And strung it up on the wall (near the ceiling) using a staple gun. It looks pretty decorative in the day:
We ran the wire so that the tiny solar panel rests in the window so that it charges in the daytime:
And at the end of the day, the lights emit a warm and lovely glow in the room. Since the “bulbs” have been painted over, they are not too bright-just enough to act like a night-light in the room. The boys love it!
Feel free to share. Just remember to credit us :)!
