Finally finished the Candy Rack for the Jedi Theater. It fits in a wall niche right by the entrance. The cabinet is a CD/DVD rack from IKEA that I painted black on the outside and white on the inside. Lights, wood, plastic diffuser, acrylic and hardware from Home Depot. Made the light box from scrap pieces of wood. My scrapbooking friend used a CRICUT to cut out the letters and I used the negative of the letter cutout. The faceplate is removable (to get at the bulb in back) and the sign is glued to a plastic diffuser in back and pressed against the clear acrylic in front. Lights turn on & off by the power strip (outlet is right behind the rack so needed a low profile power strip). Total material cost <$100 (including the $23 router bit needed for the face plate). Really classes up the Jedi Theater entrance!
