It also serves as a night light and it looks cool with any theme you have going in your room.
Step 1: Materials.
A SPST switch
A Momentary on switch
Heat Shrink or Electrical Tape
And maybe a drill to hang your lamp.
****I am not an electrician. I did this without turning off the power, it is simple but can be dangerous.
Do this at own risk, think logically and there shouldn't be any problems.
Step 2: Diagram
Step 3: Switches
You need the SPST to go before AND after the Momentary On switch. It will be spliced in before or after your lamp. The momentary on switch will need a bunch of wire to go out of the room, and back to continue to the power outlet.
Step 4: Notes
I know its not green, but you will need an incandescent light bulb, and that is because you want the signal to come on instantly, I use a big Christmas light and it seems to be enough to catch my attention when I am listening to music, and not too much so that its used as a night light every once in a while.
Also a colored film really makes it look great and puts a certain mood to your room.
IF you have pesky little brothers who annoy you, you could add a third switch that cuts the power off completely.
I hope you enjoyed, and would love to see what you build.
