This may not belong in step by step...(move if u want too)
Many years ago it didn't matter what I did w/ my decorations ...I had way to much light....yep next to my driveway was this bright light for my dark night
After a couple of years of trying to figure out how to put a toggle switch on it I finally just gave up on my quest for darkness.
While reading a book one night I noticed I would be able to see better if that lampshade wasn't on the lamp oh how this inspired me....I needed one of these for my street light!
I went to the craft store and bought some of the foam type art boards....did my best to measure the light and started cutting out images....Once they were cut out and the box was made I glued some colored plastic films on the inside and I had my nemesis defeated
Yep just another cheap fix....
