I'm hoping someone can help me find an extremely small lighting fixture for behind my TV.

We recently put up a sign above the TV, and I'd like to be able to light it up while the TV is off. See the photo here for reference (photo). I need a tiny light that has a decent spread.

As you might be able to tell from the photo, the problem is I have a thin plasma TV that sits about 1.5 inches from the wall. Does anyone have any suggestions or can you point me in the right direction on what I can use? I'm pretty clueless at the moment.

Thanks,

Sorry for the super delayed response, but yes. I just can't seem to find anything that is directional. Do you have something in mind?

You want something like this: Side emitting LED Strips

They have these at superbrightleds.com and here is an ebay link too:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/2pcs-100cm-W...#ht_3038wt_952

Its probably long for what you need but they are thin, directional, and have a 3M backing so they can be stuck anywhere. Be warned LEDs are bright so test anything out before you mount them.

Avg Price of Blu-Rays: $6.36
Thank you Blu-Ray Deals Thread!

I just received these: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ls_o03_s00_i00 and they are excellent! Very bright, warm tone rather than the bluish light that most LED's give and have a handy adhesive strip attached...
