Battery Operated LED Lights
Because I've not yet tackled tape wire and could not envision drilling holes in mdf for hard wire, I thought I'd try out the HBS battery-operated LED lights in this house.
1) Must make sure you have room for your fingers to flip that little switch. I can hit this one with the end of a pen or paintbrush.
2) The cool blue light is obnoxious. I'm going to outfit the top and bottom of the shade with a little circle of yellow cellophane (thank goodness its Easter... there's basket wrap everywhere) and see if that doesn't tone it down a bit.
3) I can replace the batteries easily but the bulbs only last about 400 hours. Fortunately, I could just buy a new fixture ($20 for this one) and screw it into the same "socket".
4) The light doesn't seem to reach as far (yes, I understand this is in an alcove) as traditional bulbs.
I'm going to take this one down and paint it brushed silver.
