I loves me some marquee lights!
Even more than marquee lights, I’ve got a thing for &.
(Yes, I have started a slight ampersand collection…)
I decided I needed a remote-controlled, battery-operated marquee ampersand above my kitchen cupboards. (Didn’t want wires or plugs showing & being 12+ feet from the floor, the ability to turn on remotely was a must.)
Couldn’t find one. Even if I found one, I’m sure that would be more $$ than I could justify spending.
I carefully removed the top with a craft knife.
…and it sat like that for months while I looked for components to complete my project!
After I decided on my lights, it was time to paint. I wanted my & to look weathered & rusty. I used Mod Podge to give it a sheen as if it were painted metal. I used white tape to bundle the little lights by twos, and small ornaments for the “globes”.
