I did just fix a light fittting to each shelf and place a head over them. BUT the lights are from IKEA and  all the wires can be fitted together so only one plug needed for all five bulbs.

2 craftsters suggested alternating the buddha heads with the man heads..............I did do this but the colours did not look right PLUS one of my man heads is clear glass and so the bulb blasts much brighter light out then the coloured heads so thats the reason that one is on the bottom shelf just now. HOWEVER I do have a blue glass man head in my sights......Must also say I have not exactly finished this yet,  in terms of where each head will stay forever but I was just so excited to take fotos and get them posted i just plonked the heads onto the shelves and get busy with my camera Grin

Lots of others asked....Where do I buy the heads..........WELL I have bought them all second hand from car boot /trunk sales etc, plus some I have bought on  marktplaats.nl which is a sort of Ebay here in  the Netherlands where I live.

Lastly the buddha heads are from a shop also here in the Netherlands , the shop is called XENOS (pronounced saynos) and they only cost me 7.99 euros each and dollars and euros are pretty similar so they were cheap. The man heads of which I have a total of 5 ( 1 green and 4 clear) I got at boot/trunk sales.

Thanks for reading if you're still with me Wink zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
one last thing I must say thankx to R3n331.........
