DIY ~ Nanoleaf Canvas—Preferred Display Location—Chg1 & More, 12/6

Waited 11 days—this is it! My DIY Nanoleaf Canvas is in its final position.

After placing the shadow box at 4 positions in my office, I am keeping it on the front of my desk. It displays best there and does not interfere with other devices or items.

Using a Philips Hue HDMI Sync Box, the color ambiance lights Respond to video, music, & games. The box can control up to 10 Philips Hue Color Lights [16 million colors] and can connect up to 4 HDMI devices. I have 3 connected: an Apple TV 4K, a Roku Ultra, and a Samsung Blu-Ray Player. The box then feeds the TV with a single HDMI cable.

Now, this is it!

Now, centered on the back wall and suspended from the ceiling. The square panel lights of the Nanoleaf Canvas dance to sounds. Music actuated accent lighting is most intriguing.

DIY ~ Wood Shadow Box for Nanoleaf Canvas—Finished, 11/27

Now, topped off with a crystal turtle…

This accent lighting display has 13 Nanoleaf Canvas Lighting Panels placed in a DIY wood shadowbox. For a 3D-effect, I placed the top of a garden trellis in the box. Backlit by the panels, it yields a nice silhouette atop the panels.

Filling the top-center of the piece is a crystal turtle. It is translucent and reflective and makes the creation more unique and special. It fills a gap that would otherwise just be dark. Otherwise, the trellis top would be lost.

The multitude of colors give an interesting ambiance for my office/man-cave. It is a special place from which to podcast.

A way to display a Nanoleaf Canvas…

Built with cedar, with the back assembled with pocket screws and glue to connect the 4 boards. After connecting, I sanded using an orbital sander with 120 grit sandpaper. The sides are 1” x 2” cedar boards with 45° corners.

For a 3D look, I put in the top of a metal garden terrace. With it, I get a nice silhouette with the back lighting of the Nanoleaf Canvas.

Stay tuned…
