The lights are IN!!!!
i'm a little late again this week, had a few things to finish up, and my laptop died yesterday T-T luckily, bf, who has MAGIC HANDS I TELLSYA (well in more ways than...NEVERMIND) fixed it!!! he removed the battery, which i think overheated and short-circuited something somewhere. i've done a little bit of backup for the more important stuff, like templates and graphics etc....this poor laptop has served me very well for over 5 years, but i'm not ready to let it retire yet! :P
back to the challenge...
before - with flash (lousy phonecam pic)
after - no need for flash! ^ ^ :P same lousy phonecam pic.
before - the left side...a little creepy....
ahhh much better!
i took apart 2 IKEA 'Billy Bookcase' Lights which i'd purchased a few months back, thinking it'd be perfect for lighting a 1:12 shop....why not for 1:24 too eh?
i was thinking of putting up a 'how i did it' with photos, but it's so dead simple i don't know if it's worth the trouble. but since i have one intact (i bought 3 ;P they were so cheap, i think not more than SGD$5 each excluding 2 AAA batteries) i might if i remember to in the future :X
one of the wires came loose, and i had to whip out my soldering iron, which i'm deathly afraid of, but i managed to get it back onto the circuit and now i'm itching to try out -proper- soldering for some of the ideas i have in mind for decorating the bakery. it -is- a decorating challenge after all, isn't it?
meager update, but i'm so pleased with how it turned out. how's your dollhouse coming along?
