I couldn't sleep the other night, so I felt compelled to take this night light I was given that isn't really my style...


and make it something I could proudly hang in my bathroom....one that my fiance wouldn't (very nicely) say was "interesting."

It's just black paper, so unfortunately if I want to change it I'll have to tear it all off the frame - I couldn't find a plastic or metal grid with holes large enough to accommodate the lite brite pegs to make it easily switchable.  Any thoughts on where I could get my hands on some?

I've seen rolls of plastic-foil ribbon stuff with a grid of holes in it, similar to the base of a Lite Brite.  But if you used something with many holes in it, you'd still need to put black paper over it, so the light wouldn't shine through the unfilled holes.  I guess you could staple the black paper to the grid plastic, so it would be removable.

That sounds good - I was hoping to have as the base of the night light a plastic or metal grid that would be permanent, so I could make black paper templates I could put on like the original lite brite by attaching the corners with four of the pegs and be able to switch them out easily.  I'll have to check out that ribbon - thank you!  Cheesy

do you live by a Toys R Us?  Because I work at one, and I know that we sell extra lite brite pegs and other designs!  The one i've been eyeing is a My Little Pony set with the design paper and the pegs. Cheesy
