My latest DIY project

I saw this on Pinterest and loved it!  It is an Ikea hack.  Two Ribba picture frames, 1 set of Dioder LED strip lights and two bundles of Torka twig thingy's.  I ran to Ikea today, bought my stuff and built them this afternoon, they are super easy to make. You can also see my Amazon wire window/mirror thing that I bought with my Birthday gift card from Barry.  We just recently painted the bedroom, and I replaced the overhead light, eventually Craig is going to rebuild our bedroom furniture, but in the meantime I have to live with this set that we bought about 23 years ago.  I still need to finish up the crown with a little more caulk and then touch-up the paint, it just never ends.
Here they are with the room lights off, the lights are white, but they give off this reddish glow at the bottom of the picture frames which I think looks cool.

 And with the room lights on, it is hard to tell they are lit up in the photo, but in person you can see that they are lit up.

Craig also built a shelf for our satellite receiver and PS3 with little side panels to hide the cords, it drove me crazy that the cords were all over the place and all over the floor and the receiver and PS3 were just sitting on a table in the corner of the bedroom, this is so much neater and tidier. We ran the power and satellite cords behind the baseboards and I used a cord minder to run them up the wall to the TV and then just painted it to match.
