__________________________________________

Part I: monitor mounts 

I wasn’t completely happy with how the touch screen was taking up so much desk real estate:   

So I headed over to Amazon and did some shopping for a suitable mount and found the following: 

VIVO Single LCD Monitor Desk Mount 
And 
Displays2go 8.9 to 10.1 Inches Clamp-On Tablet Holders with Flexible Arm, Black   

Package arrived very shortly after I placed the order and I went straight to work putting them up!   

  
Putting it together was relatively easy. Just follow the pictures in the instructions. All the parts and hardware are labeled. 

AFTER:     
 

You’ll probably notice how dark it is over the music. Need better lighting! 

Part II: Lighting

My music rack was lit by a strip of LED lights from ikea, and though very pretty, doesn’t really do much in way of actually lighting up the music for reading. So agian, I headed over to Amazon and found some LED lights, in tape form. Along with some 12v, and connectors.  

 

 The unboxing:  
  

Testing: it works!  

Cutting the strip, it can be cut every 3 LEDs along the cutting marks. 
  

Using the little connectors to you guessed it, connect the cut strips. 
 

 The finished product: 

What to do with the left overs…?  

Light up my windows of course! 

THAT’S ALL FOR NOW FOLKS!! Thanks for reading!!
