Give Any Room Cozy Vibes With This Affordable Ambient Lighting DIY
Clever TikTok DIY duo, @experimentingwithdecor, installed lighting above their crown molding to effortlessly create a dazzling effect that will brighten up any room of your home.
You install the molding as usual, but leave a few inches between the molding and where it meets the ceiling. In this space, tuck in a row of slim LED lighting, switch on and enjoy.
This DIY lighting project is quick, easy, and affordable. A variety of crown molding and strip lighting can be found at most hardware and home decor stores, or online.
Home Depot sells Ekena Millwork polyurethane rose crown molding for $41.80 per piece, and American Pro Decor unfinished, recycled polystyrene crown molding at $118 a package.
