Vanity mirror with lighting

This project was easier to picture than do! I had so many sketches of how I wanted it to be and picked out all of my materials, but changes were made along the way. I underestimated how much work and time would be incorporated into this small project. First time working with pipe, epoxy and lighting. I felt like an electrician, cutting wire, creating junctions, and wiring a switch and learned and taught myself so much in the process. The most challenging thing was sizing the frame correctly before using epoxy and connecting the wires to make sure everything worked and fit well which sent me to Home Depot 4 times in one week. Ouch! But it was all worth it! I learned so much from this lovely project. I wanted something that expressed the artist in me! Now I want to make some more for friends or whomever wants one.

    • Thank you so much! It was fun to make. Now I want to make something else with pipe lol. I thought adding the photos would help if anyone wants to make it too.
