LED Poster Frame/light box

Hey every one hope you are all well, I wanted to share my attempt at making a poster frame/box Illuminated with LED Tape. Its fair to say that the perfect box/frame is nearly impossible to make, as in the definitive way to actually build the thing, Obviously the best way is to buy one, you know the ones, snap frame type with LEDs around the edge, very nice and convenient but crikey who has £200-£500 EACH to spend, and most would want more than 1-2 frames, there are so many ways to custom make these frames/boxes, there is no hard and fast way to do it really, some say this way some the other, fat- thin- slim- big- authentic Tube lighting LEDs Foil white paint etc etc, so I thought well just combine some of everything until I thought its about there. Ok so what I Did, My wall in the hall way was totally screwed out of line and....well just not good , so I placed a stud wall over the old one, but leaving the size of the poster as is so 27x40 recess. I then had 2 frames made, basically picture frames so nice and cheap, rebated 6mm to allow the acrylic to sit in, then basically placed the frames over the rebate in the wall, the lighting was 5MTR role of Cool white tape complete with transformer and power, this a plug and play kit and cost £22.00 this was then wrapped around the inside of the rebate, the tape has peel off self adhesive, then placed the poster frame on top, so it looks like a normal picture frame, the back of the rebate was painted with matt white, so nothing special, as for the LED I used all 5mtrs so once the tape went round the rebate and met up with the other end, I just continued around again until it ran out, so really doubling up, which gives more light so to speak, I wired a switch in between the LED and power so as to give control, rather than just switching on/off at the switch/plug end.
Its my first time on here so hope I have explained and shown you all what I have done, and is OK, I am in the process of making 2 more frames now, which I will share with you, but have gone a little further in style and construction, and I hope you enjoy my little journey.
Anyway here are some pickys of the finished item.

The finished product looks pretty good, your camera sucks at low light conditions.
