Stick-on glow-in-the-dark stars have nothing on the lighting installation in this nursery. Check out the video inside to see how a DIYer dad turned his child's nursery ceiling into a glowing starscape.
This is one of those projects that is mechanically simple but oh so time consuming. He purchased an LED illumination box—the engine that powers the whole affair—and bundles of fibre optic cable. From there it was a matter of mapping out the star pattern he wanted, drilling holes, and stuffing a fibre-optic strand into each one. The end result definitely seems more than worth the labour. We think you'd be hard pressed to find any child—or adult!—who wouldn't love a ceiling of stars that actually twinkle.
