    a generally planar second member having a second outer boundary with a shape similar to the first member;

    a frame sandwiched between and fixedly coupled to the first and second members, the frame defining a frame outer boundary with a shape similar to the first and second members, the frame comprising at least one discrete spacer that spaces at least one of the first and second members from the frame, wherein the frame is fixedly coupled to a spaced member by a fastener that passes through the spaced member and the spacer;

    an internal cavity defined by the first member, the second member, and the frame, the internal cavity being large enough for at least one lighting element to be positioned therein, at least a portion of the first member being configured to allow light from inside the internal cavity to escape therefrom, at least a portion of the first member having features thereon for breaking up light to create a spectral effect; and
