Here's what I did just last Saturday:

Mounted an LED module using double-sided tape to the side of plastic venting under each foot well.

Something similar to this:


Ran wires through center of console to HVAC controls and tapped them into the dash light wires.

This may be a bit more involved than you're interested in - but I think it would be a fairly simple project for most.
