DIY A WIFI-ENABLED LED BAR SIGN
If you’ve ever spent the $30 and 3 hours building a generic brand bookshelf or 300+ hours shopping and spending to furnish an entire house, you know how equally exciting and boring it is.To get more news about led bar decor, you can visit htj-led.com official website.
Sure, decorating and designing your dream home is an incredible journey, but going through the hours of sales talks from home furnishing experts and scrolling for days on Pinterest to potentially find that perfect DIY project can be overwhelming.
At the end of the day, it’s easy to know what you want. But it feels nearly impossible to find that—or settle for anything less.
Why can’t you just create the exact kind of furniture you’re seeking?
Here’s the good news: The tech is already in the works at consumer-friendly companies like IKEA and designer-friendly companies like BoConcept.
Using the design as a framework for the project, Steven had to make a couple of decisions for the design, including what material would be best for coupling with the LEDs of the sign.
After some careful deliberation, he decided to go with ½” acrylic.
Acrylic provides a variety of benefits for sign-making; not only does it look good and provide good refraction—the reflective properties—but acrylic is also highly durable, lightweight, and less expensive than glass.
He decided to attach the LEDs to the outside of the acrylic and simply frame the entire sign with a wooden frame. Not only did this solve his rastering problem, but the sign also improved in it’s aesthetic properties from the initial design.
After vector cutting and staining the ⅛” birch frame, it was time to put all of the pieces together.
Both the LEDs and wooden frame were attached with strong silicone glue and left in a press overnight to ensure a strong bond. While those were sitting overnight, another Maker, Garrett, helped with creating a metal backing for the sign, which was also attached with silicone glue.
Wielding a Spark Particle controller, he was able to control the lighting of the bar sign using WiFi and the app Particle, which allowed for the lights to change colors, patterns, and chase—much like bingo lights.
By the end of his project, Steven had a highly individualized piece of furniture for his friend’s house bar—just one piece to the mission of highly personalized home decor.
