Introduction: RGB Changing LED Lamp With IR Remote Control
I have an old but beautiful IKEA lamp, however the 12V 20W halogen bulb it used is broken now. The idea of replacing it with LEDs came up days ago, luckily I got a LED controller along with a SMD RGB LED strip, so I decided to give it a try.
