As always Mr ATC for another idea of housing and today guess what???

We are going to create a simple and easy DIY corner light… This corner was so dark at night that I have decided to add some light to it using a walabot DIY device in order to find the cables, pipes and studs in the wall.

Here is as always a short preview of this design.

Thanks for watching!!!

First of all, I will share with you our before image!

For this corner light we will be using 2 thin lumber slats, a piece of plywood as support and some LED Lights.

And of course, I will be displaying them all on my favorite workbench (if you would like to make it for yourself.

I have also a tutorial about it here

As I realized that some of the slat were a little bit curved so I have decided to use my planer to remove some of those imperfections.

After the planer, it was time for me to move to my miter saw in order to make he 20 degree angle cut...

When both slat were cut, I decided to place one of them on the back support to visualize and take mark of the LED placement.

To insert the second slat into the support I have decided to create some holes on it, then after that using my bandsaw create with the second slat the input going inside those holes

And finish those cut using my jigsaw...

Now time to look at the best placement on the wall

We all know that studs, cables and pipes are running through the walls and we cannot easily spot them from the outside. So if you want to drill holes you need to know what is behind the wall.

In our house this section here is where all the pipes are placed and they are going from the fondation to the rooftop. So believe me better check twice before drilling this side…

Then after preparing the wall, it was time for me to move on with the painting part. In order to match with the wall, I have decided to use white as main color...

Et Voila!!! I have added a few decorative confetti dots to upgrade the white spirit here and add some color.

It’s always a pleasure for me to share effective ideas at home with you!
