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.
