So you bought yourself a brand new projector, but there’s one not-so-tiny problem — your ceiling-mounted lighting is in the way. Check out the DIY sliding solution that Swedish designer Linus Åkesson has implemented in his own living room.
Although some of us might have taken the chandelier in question out of the room and headed to our local big box store for a few extra lamps, Linus, who can be found at his blog linusakesson, went in a different direction. Determined not to block the view of his projection screen he used a FAC kit, some steel rods and a wooden door jam to make some modifications.
The chandelier now slides back and forth freely when need be. It’s a simple solution that could have cost hundreds of dollars for new lighting, plus it’s far more entertaining than standard lighting &mdash ;that is, unless you have The Clapper.
