I got this chrome-plated thingy with red and blue lenses at a garage sale. The guy said it came off his boat. I cut a piece of thin plywood to fit the bottom and attached it with screws through the screw holes it already had. I cut a hole for the kind of night light that you just squeeze and pop in. I added some wooden beads for feet and, ba-da-boom, ba-da-bing — nightlight!
