Creating a special ceiling light for Maker Monday #maker #craft #diy

We gave my daughter a loft bed to give her more space in her bedroom.  As a result, the ceiling fan that had been in her room had to go.  That left us with needing some sort of room light.  We decided that most of the ones we liked were too expensive, so she created her own.  We started with a basic LED ceiling light.

She then took acrylic paint to it and created a random block paint pattern.

The nice side effect of this was that it took a VERY bright LED light and diffused it enough to make it a nice bedroom ceiling light.  It's brighter than it looks in the picture, more of a soft white light.
