110V Power above pantry in 36CKTS

I've wanted power above pantry. Decide to tackle the project. Installed another breaker in to power box (lower right)



Fished wires up to a switch and then to a receptacle on top of pantry.

I have a lighted miniature light house with a revolving beacon and red and green channel markers that will glow red and green.


Guess I can't totally forget my years of boating. Some days I miss my 32' Sea Ray Sundancer twin screw.

Very nice looking!

My DW loves QVC/HSN and bought some battery powered (AA or AAA) led light strands that she keeps inside various jars and vases at home. Very thin and provide nice ambient lighting around the whatnots she keeps in the jar. Have a few options like blinking, fade, solid, etc, as well as a timer to adjust when and how long to run them. Might work well for your red and green cans.

I also got a few of the battery powered led light strips from Walmart that are in a plastic tube, kinda designed for under cabinet use. Comes with a remote. I installed (with the provided Velcro tape) under cabinets near stove and another up in the area above pantry about which you speak. A single remote controls both and provides nice background lighting to that top area as well as better work light for counter top.

Question for you - do you take that stuff down when ready to travel, or did you secure them somehow? DW has about 5 things we put up there and I have to put up/take down each time we travel. I'd love to leave them up there secure!

Thanks for the tip on the lighting for the cans.


They stay up all the time.

I found some rubber anti slip sheets with a sticky backing at Menards. Put that on the bases and nothing 's moved since.

So both the lighthouse and cans stay up there while in motion? Wow! Could you by chance send me a link to the product you used or a close up picture or something? I'd love to secure semi-permanently some of the stuff the DW has for that area; would save time setting up (she has 5 pieces of decor up there, some fragile).

If I can get an idea of what you used I can try to find similar at Lowes, Home Depot, etc.

Here's a link to go to.
Click on floor care and surface protection.
The product your looking for are called Grippers. It only shows the 1" round pads but they do make it in larger square pads

Waxman Consumer Group

110V Power above pantry in 36CKTS

I see by your picture that you have the same fridge as us. How does it work on warmer weather?
