Adding light to your closet- rope light.

In my apartment I have this long closet. There are two doors on each end and there is NO lighting inside the closet. When I first moved in I was a little shocked by that.
I have been thinking of different ways to add lighting so I can see in there.
On top of my dresser I have all my jewelry and recently I added a mirror to the inside of my closet door and I have been doing my makeup there. It is close to my window so I get a lot of natural light which I  L O V E.
Anyways back to the lighting...
I bought these touch lights at Wal-Mart a couple of weeks ago and thought it would brighten things up in there...
No just no

obviously this was not enough light, not that I use my closet much at night but I do like to pick out my clothes and jewelry the night before so ya girl needs light!!!!
So I had these for about 2 weeks and then I saw some rope light at Wal-Mart and it was like a bell went off in my head, DUHH. Why haven't I thought of this sooner?!!
It came with hooks but there was no way I could hook it to the wall. So I just ran it across the door seal on the inside of my closet. There is nothing holding it there, it is just resting on top.
 Very easy and only $12.99!! Woo hoo!

  1. That is such a great idea! Does it have to be plugged in?

  2. This is such an awesome idea!!!! :D I seriously love those lights!

  3. So handy! My closet in my dorm this year doesn't have a light inside of it either, and I was actually thinking of buying touch lights. Maybe I'll have to do what you did though!
