I managed to salvage a few exit signs from an old office building and thought of making a lamp for my room. Almost all the parts you need are in the sign so this project is basically FREE!!!
Step 1: Materials
1). flat head screwdriver.
2). soldering iron/solder
3)a switch (I had a few extra laying around)
Step 2: Open It Up.
Open the sign to start removing the insides of the sign. The only thing you really got to remove is the circuit board but it makes it easier to remove everything.
Step 3: Solder the Wires.
solder the wires to the switch and to the light bulbs.
Step 4: Finished!
Now you have an exit sign lamp that you can put anywhere. You can also remove the red plastic so it's not red and use it to light up a small room.
