Sometimes, a project doesn't need to be complex to be effective. Here is a super simple "toss lamp" that can be placed or tossed anywhere you want low-level lighting.
You can use different colored stringed lights for whatever mood you want. You can even hook it up to a color organ (lets light throb to music) and have a bunch laying around the floor for parties.
1. Take a tupperware bin of any size or shape
2. Toss in string lights
3. Close the lid, letting the plug end dangle out
4. Place the light, plug it in
