This is a picture of a DIY headboard design from the blog diyideas. Now forget that it’s a project to create a headboard for a bed and just focus on the light box. That light on a larger scale or even as it is would make a great element in a set for the eye candy you need. Here’s how you do it.

Build a simple wood frame from 2x4s, and add crossbeams to create as many light “frames” as you like. Drill small holes in the bottom of each opening. (Make sure the holes are large enough to feed the light cords through.) Paint your frame, then attach it to the wall, screwing it into the studs. Fill each space with lights, connecting the cords as you go. The translucent panels were cut from polycarbonate sheet and affixed to the frame with screws. If you don’t want to cut the polycarbonate yourself, have it cut to size at your local home supply center.

    I am wondering if SHEER FABRIC would work and be easier, simpler.
