The LED strip lights strike again! The reason I originally bought strip lighting and used them on my mill lighting project was because I wanted to add lighting to a partial wall in my great room.
I started by running solid core wire down the inside of the wall, and tying into an existing switch. The wire runs up and terminates into a single female receptacle (indicated in red in the picture below). The 12V supply lives up there and will need a small cover at some point. You can just see it peeking out on the left hand side.
With the wiring installed I just plugged in the 12V supply and started running strips down the length of the wall. It went quickly, and aside from a pile of dust was easy. The results are pretty good.
The picture was taken around dusk with very similar camera settings. I adjusted exposure a little to help match what you actually see. The after still looks a little bright. It provides a nice mood lighting around the great room. The only issue I have is that the CFLs in the living room are a lot warmer than the light. I will probably slowly change out the other bulbs to match.
I love soft indirect lighting in my living spaces!
