That turned out awesome!  Great idea!  I love the touch-lamp action, too!

Excellent work Matthew !

I'd be proud to have that in my house.

Got my wall hanging finished.

I used a beat up fibreglass front end, cut the front off and repaired areas.

AC outlet on wall behind.  Used a touch lamp from thrift store and wired in 4W bulbs.  Used a diamond hole saw to cut holes in back of the sealed beams.
