Jeremie Bird from Spokane Christian Center in Spokane, WA brings us these stacks of slats.
This design was inspired by some architectural panels seen on newer buildings. They created five panels using eight sheets of 1/2″ plywood, cut them into 4ft x 4″ strips with a table saw, and painted them a satin white. Then they ripped a 2x4x12 in half, painted them black so you cant see them against a black backdrop, and made two support rails to attach the slats to. They up-lit and down-lit the panels with 10 LED color strips to make a combination of colors and gradients they wanted.
Total cost for this was $250, not including the LED lights.
