another cool thing I used on my project were some acrylic "boards". When you scuff acrylic it disperses the light. So, if you had an acrylic sheet (sized) sitting ontop of a shelf and scuffed (with sandpaper) the sheet - any LED lighting applied to this will make the whole surface glow!(Also - if you only scuffed a certain area - like a logo - only that would glow!)
after doing a lot of intel before my project - I found that the general consesus seems to be that the "rope" lights are inferior to the "strip" lights.They ropes may be better in outdoor situations, but by and large are not as bright as strips.
This is a helpful Instructable. Thanks.
You have NO IDEA how MUCH I Wish those connectors worked better!!
i had very spotty luck with those clamp connectors. They don't make the connections very well (in my project anyway). Soldering may be a pain - but it worked better.
