While shopping for Christmas lights, I found a string of ‘icicles’ that was only 4 ft. 6 in. long — the perfect length for behind my headboard.
And the icicles — 2, 3, or 4-light mini-strings hanging vertically from the horizontal string — highlight my panels perfectly.
The only problem is the lights now highlight the red/orange area — I’d switched the glass colours because the translucent orange appeared so much darker than the opaque red against the blue wall.
Now, the lights shine through the glass & the colours show truer.
I love ’em!
