Step 1: Choose Your Mirror and Lights

Mirror Selection: Choose a large, high-quality mirror that fits your space. You can use an existing mirror or purchase one that suits your style.

Step 2: Measure and Mark

Measure the Mirror: Use a measuring tape to determine the dimensions of your mirror. Mark where you want the lights to be placed around the edges.

Mark for Drilling: If using Hollywood-style light bulbs, mark where each bulb will be placed around the mirror. Ensure they are evenly spaced for a balanced look.

Step 3: Install the Lights

LED Light Strips: If using LED light strips, attach adhesive hooks or clips around the edges of the mirror frame. Carefully place the LED strips along the hooks, ensuring they are secure.

Test the Lights: Turn on the lights to ensure they are working correctly. Adjust the placement if needed to ensure even illumination.

Step 6: Mount or Place the Mirror

Wall Mounting: If you’re mounting the mirror on the wall, use a stud finder to locate studs and securely attach the mirror using screws and anchors. Ensure it is level and stable.
