So we wanted something new for our table. Not one of those rails (they're efficient and versatile, but not nice to look at), so we thought we'd go to Ikea and see what they had there -- purely as inspiration, mind you. We were thinking of a lamp that hangs over the table. We saw some things that perhaps would fit, but in the bathroom department, we saw a LED lamp that we both were instantly attracted to.
We came up with the idea to use some rough planks for the pallet that held the stones for our pond border and put three of those lights on the bottom. We thought we could use the system from the 12V cable system to suspend it from the ceiling. And that's what we did!

We managed to put the lights right in the middle of the usual spot for the table too! And it gives a lot of light, which is good if you're working on a crafting project on the table!
