How about a shower wall? Depending on your setup, you could have a wall one side, and a door the other. Too bad you dont have more. Also depends on how much effort you want to put in. They work well in entrance hallways, giving an opaque view into another room.

Pick up some toggle switches, a 10W light socket and light bulb. Drill the space for the light bulb from the bottom of the block. Insert the socket w/ bulb and seal with silicone.
Voila a light that sells at IKEA for $25CAN.

Integrate them at odd angles into a wall.

Do you have an outdoor area you spend time in? You could make some sort of under-lit planter box kinda thing.

Isn't there a website out there that shows one how to stuff a kitten in a bottle? You could try that.

If it could not be a partition of sorts, I too was thinking something to do with light, but other than sticking a nipple through it and making a lamp out of it or feeding a couple Xmas lights in there, I can't think of much.

Do you have a basement that has shiatty old well windows? That's always a good way to put 8 of them to good use.

I saw some put into a dining room table, that looked pretty good. I'd go as far as putting colored lights under/behind/in them to give them a warm glow.

Bathroom Window would be a good place for them, can't see in but lets good light into the room... umm I can't think of anything else

Drill patterned holes into them- make dice

(Granted, you can only roll them once, but at least it will be interesting when you do)

Send 'em my way! We've got some basement windows we want to replace - and I can't stand the curtains my wife picked out for privacy.

Seriously, did you find it hard to install the ones you did use?

Find an unused corner of your place, put 'em in a big disorganized pile and with a low power light stuck inside and just make a weird sculpture.
