This is a project I have been planning do for a long time and I finally got the time to complete it!
Some nights we get up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom and the toilet. Sometimes when I turn on the light it can ruin my sleep so I wanted to build an automated circuit that will light up my toilet seat when I come close to it at night.
I have also seen a project here in instructables that uses glow-in-the-dark paint, but I couldnt find where to buy it at a reasonable price.
The actual light is dimmer than the picture but it is exactly as it should be.
