I will be installing built-in bookcases to the right and left of the fireplace pictured below.
LED strip lighting will be installed in the bookcase.
I'm having trouble deciding the best/easiest way to run electrical to both sides of the bookcase.
Option 1) The blue lines in the photo. I could try to pull power from the can lights near the fireplace and feed wire to make a receptacle on both sides of the bookcase. This option would require cutting holes through several ceiling joists ... yuck.
Option 2) I could pull power from the outlet that is currently near the fireplace. The orange lines in the photo show this option. I would have to cut holes through 2x4's and a corner. Then I would have to figure out how to get it to the other side of the fireplace.
Any suggestions? I could use it.
