LED Closet Lighting




So one day I was thinking hmm, its quite hard to see in this closet.  Any time you go into the closet the light is directly behind you, and you cant see anything.  So I had the idea to rig up some LED lighting.  I got some 12v Warm White LED strip lights of ebay http://www.ebay.com/itm/320774924729?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649#ht_1423wt_905
Stuck them to the wall around the inside of the door.  I then took a miniature limit switch and glued it to the door track, it is wired in line with the power supply, so the LED's are only on when the door is open.  It is currently plugged into an outlet just outside the closet.  But I'm thinking that I may install a power source in the closet.
