Homemade Light Box

Mom has done some selling on Ebay in the past, and is currently selling some stuff on Craigslist. She has always wanted a light box for this, and so I found a tutorial and I whipped one up! Here is the tutorial: Inexpensive Light Box. To find the box we went dumpster diving! We not only found some boxes, but also some other free stuff that was marked as "damaged/defective" behing Office Max. Just the packaging was messed up, so that was kinda exciting! Anyways, here is the light box without the lights on:

And with the lights on:

Obviousvly we still have a few kinks to work out with the lighting, but otherwise I am really tickled with it! I think if we just change the fabric on the top for something thinner and get some better lightbulbs it will be alright. Right now the fabric (which diffuses the light) is cut from some old polos (golf shirts) we had.
