Name – Lance Wade

Location – Columbus, Georgia

Occupation – Anthem, Inc. (Health Insurance), National Accounts division. Recently graduated from Auburn University in August 2018.

Guilty pleasure – If you ask any of my friends, they would tell you my guilty pleasure would be spending entirely too much time and money at Lowes on a project. I often will get these random thoughts or ideas out of nowhere and will immediately take a trip to Lowes—probably a 2-hour long trip. Once I get home and start assembling whatever contraption my excessive brain came up with, I’ll start to realize there go my savings for the week haha—but it is always worth it in the end because I love creating stuff.

The Nanoleaf Light Panels may not be right for every room when exposed by itself. However, Lance Wade from Columbus, GA has come up with an ingenious way to turn this artsy product into even more of a work of art. Here’s the project he did in his own home that’s sure to get your creative gears turning. His colorful forest installation consists of a wooden frame with a painted canvas that’s illuminated by Nanoleaf Light Panels.

Lance first started noticing the Nanoleaf Light Panels on Instagram. He wasn’t sure at the time how exactly he wanted to use it, but one thing was for certain, he knew he needed it! The creative wheels started spinning in his head as he started to plan out how to incorporate the Light Panels into his living space.

He was thankful that he was able to bounce countless thoughts and ideas off of his ever so patient friend Haviland, whose eyes by the end of their long discussions was twitching from … the endless flow of creativity. But alas, Lance thought of the perfect project and he couldn’t wait to get started.

“If I do not make a space my own, I really don’t enjoy being in it.”

Lance describes the Nanoleaf Light Panels as the perfect product for anyone who wishes to stand out from a crowd. Being so versatile and easy to use, the light panels allow people to unlock their crazy ideas and launch them into reality.

He used to wake up every morning dreading having to roll out of a bed and start the day. That’s no longer the case these days! No more blaring alarms, and struggling to get up while his body is still half asleep in the darkness. Lance wakes up naturally each morning to the soothing sunrise emitted from his Nanoleaf Light Panels, waking him up gently at 7am daily as scheduled.

“It’s funny how ambient lighting really can change the whole personality of a room, and ultimately affecting your own.”

How did he create this masterpiece?

He started off his setup by installing Light Panels to the wall and measuring the needed frame size to go around it. Then, he drew the trees on sheet metal and cut them out. Once that was done, he screwed the pieces into a frame that he also made himself. As a finishing touch, he painted a canvas and attached it to the frame.

He added in pulleys because he wanted an easy way to access his light panels and the Rhythm module whenever he wanted. The pulley system allows him to lower or raise the wall art whenever he needs to access his light panels.

If anyone is interested in any of the other things in the pictures, just let him know! He made all of it (ex. the lamps, shelves, any of the wood and metal pieces).
