When i decided to improve lighting on my desk i turned to Ikea. I got the Ikea Jansjo (http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/10128748) and the Ikea Lack (http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/60124272) and mistakenly threw away the receipt. I did like the Jansjo because it was small and convenient, but the Lack didn't give me the results I was looking for. So, I converted the Ikea Lack bookcase lighting into a Jansjo look-a-like. The modified Lack turned out to be as convenient as the Jansjo light and it was less expensive.

Step 1: Everything you will need

For this project you will need to get:

- IKEA LACK bookcase light (http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/60124272) $24.99
- USB bend a light. I got two at Fry's electronics (http://shop3.frys.com/product/5421199?site=sr:SEARCH:MAIN_RSLT_PG) for $4.99.
- Stuff you should have on hand: Epoxy, drill, wire cutters, soldering iron, screw driver, thermal compound, liquid tape
Very innovative. The directions seem easy to follow.
