Use of the structure “Make something [adjective]” confuses me in sometimes. I wonder if use of it below correct .

I made lights solar-powered.

In this sentence i want to convert my house’s lights into solar powered lights.

Does this sentence have same meaning?

  • I made my lights into solar-powered lights. [or ones]

The idiom is: to make something into something else.

The kids hated spinach. So we made eating it into a game. :)

  • I thought make something + adj gives same meaning in this sentence ,as “solar-powered “ is adjective . Is it totally wrong or does it give different meaning ? – language learner Nov 1 '19 at 22:41
