Create A Safe, Motion-Sensing LED Lighting System For Your Closet Or Pantry

Closets are often dark, and the higher up you get the harder it is to see inside. Adding a lightbulb isn't always the simplest, safest or even cheapest option, but you can solve all of those problems with a few LEDs.

Kelly couldn't put an incandescent light in her dark pantry because the space is too small for it to be safe, and even if it didn't burn down the house her dad is an inspector and would give her grief. So, for safety and sanity's sake she decided to get creative. Kelly found some cheap Christmas LED lights for $US2.50 and wired them along the wall and plugged them into a motion-sensing outlet so the pantry would light up when the door opened. The Christmas lights could be attached to the inside of the door frame, so installation was significantly easier than planting a regular light bulb in the ceiling.

If you've got a dark closet and want a good solution, this is it. Be sure to check out Kelly's post for the full run-down.

    Wow, ugly AND dependant on having a wall socket in your pantry (which is unlikely)...
