Oh wow! That lamp is so amazing! What a great idea.
I was also trying to think of an alternative to the coffee table and my idea was a square wall hanging with light bright pegs that you could just walk up to an rearrange whenever you feel like.
For those of you who've done the coffee table -- do the pegs fit snugly in the pegboard holes or are the holes actually a little bigger than the pegs?
I'm wondering because if the pegs are a little loose, then the coffee table still works out great because the pegs aren't gonna fall out due to the flat angle. BUT at a 90 degree angle, would they just fall out? As I recall, the light brite toy itself is slightly angled and not 90 degrees.
You could also keep 'em in there with a little bit of clear-drying glue if you find that they don't quite fit the pegboard.
