Easy Hollywood Vanity Light Mirror


If you have been shopping around for the perfect vanity light mirror but literally frown at the price tag? Yes, I have and saved up for one years ago. I personally own that expensive but awesome Hollywood Girl Vanity Broadway Mirror  you have seen all over YouTube! I will place it in the guest room for now because it's too heavy to be on top of a glass shelf.

I needed a change because my new room didn't have a lot of space and I wanted a new look while figuring out my storage solution of my makeup and hair products. I went to my local hardware store. Lowes, and discover I could make me own for cheap!!!!! I love it and I can always change up the lighting style or mirror anytime without going broke or damaging the walls. This is an awesome solution for anyone on a budget or want to create a unique vanity light mirror to their taste.

This tutorial will show you how to convert a vanity light bar into a plug to be accessible for everyone's desire and needs without drilling holes into the wall or be a electrician genius.

♥Installed mirror with frameless mirror plastic clips on side and bottom edge of the mirror. I screwed the plastic clips into the wall: http://bit.ly/1tvJumC. I haven't tried the command strips for the mirror but I think it would work if you use a lot of them to hold it up since the mirror is really heavy.

  2. Hi Lisa. I love this idea. Ive been wanting a vanity for a long time. This makes it look like i can actually get one! How did you get the second light bar to light up? I do not see an extension cord attached to it.

    1. In the video, I mentioned at the end that you can wrap it around the mirror. I stuffed my cord behind and around the mirror and down the vanity shelf. You can move the extension cord of the vanity bar to the side connecting the frameless mirror.
