The windows in this room face North which means I never, ever see direct sunlight in this room.This remarkable effect was created by the sunlight reflecting off the window of a car parked in front of the house. It was so cool, I took a photo.
Browsing the 'net I came across Songbird's tips on how to dress a bookcase, as she puts it. I was reminded I wanted to deal with these shelves over the computer desk in the dining room/office.
I also wanted to put up a couple of new NON lights I got at IKEA.

All in all, it was most satisfying.

Light truly is a most amazing decorating toy, don't you think?
