My wife's bday present

Been planning this for a while, really happy with how it turned out.

 

Just a few pic's and a short video explaining it. It was supposed to be RGBW in the bottom but it wasnt happy like that and wasnt working right for some reason, my uC was locking up every few seconds, I dug in a little and it seems it wasnt happy being powered from the low PWM buck converter, probably something I could take care of with a little work but she's more than happy with it just white on the bottom and told me to leave it alone so I will (tho I really really want to tear it back apart and give it another shot lol)

 The light its self is an old thing we picked up at a yard sale for $5 2 years ago, all total probably only have $10 in it (all the components are recycled from old builds except the buck converter I paid $1.66 each for from ebay and the pair of switches).

This looks awesome, and it could tie into something I’ve been wanting to do. Can you school me on buck drivers, or provide a parts list and circuit diagram?

My biggest hurdle is powering LEDs with mains power.
