Step One- Apply double sided adhesive pads to the back of your mirror and stick it to your wall
Step Two- Measure in 3 inches on each corner and make a mark with a pencil
Step Three- Take a screw driver and a hammer and poke a hole threw the dry wall where you made your marks
Step Four- Take your wall anchors and screw them into the wall using a philips screw driver.
Step Five- Screw your frameless mirror mounting clips into the wall anchors ( make sure your mounting clips are the same size as your mirror thickness)
Step Six- Disassemble your vanity light bars so that you can work with just the back bracket.
Step Seven- Hold your bracket up beside your mirror making sure it’s even with the top of the mirror and mark two holes with a pencil.
Step Eight- Take your screw driver and hammer and make two holes where your pencil marks are. Then screw in some wall anchors using a philips screw driver.
Step Nine- Hold up your bracket and screw a screw into the wall anchor to mount your bracket to the wall, make sure all the wires are sticking out towards you. Repeat for other side
Step Ten- Take a household extension cord and cut off both ends so your only left with a wire, then take a pair of pliers and cut in between the two wires so you can pull them apart do this on both ends of the cord
Step Eleven- Using a sharpie or felt, mark on one of the wires, follow that wire down to the other end and mark with a sharpie again so you know that’s the same wire
Step Twelve- Strip the ends of your extension cord wires using a pair of wire strippers
Step Thirteen- Take the wire you marked with the black sharpie and the white wire on the light bracket and twist the exposed copper together in a clockwise direction.
Step Fourteen- Then twist clockwise a marret on top of those copper wires. Make sure no copper is showing , if you find your stripped wire is showing with the marret on cut your copper shorter and twist the marret back on.
Step Fifteen- Take your wire with no sharpie mark and do the same thing as the step before but this time it will be with the black wire from the light.
Step Sixteen- Take a pair of tin snips and notch out a hole on the light cover so the extension cord wire can leave the light fixture
Step Seventeen- Put the cover on
Step Eighteen- Take your other extension cord and cut off the female end , but keep the male ( plug in ) end so you can plug it into the wall later
NOTE ! DO NOT PLUG IT INTO THE WALL TILL THE END TO AVOID YOU ZAPPING YOURSELF
Step Nineteen- Identify the bigger prong on the plug, that is your neutral prong so the wire that’s on that side of the plug is the wire you want to mark with a sharpie
Step Twenty- Take pliers and cut in between the wires, pull apart, and mark that neutral wire with a sharpie
Step Twenty One- Take the other end of the extension cord already attached to one light and the end of the new extension cord we just identified and splice to the other fixture.
Step Twenty Two- Take the wires that are marked black and put with the white wire from the light, twist clockwise, then twist a marret on clockwise. Then take the remanding wires and twist with the black wire from the light, twist on a marret
Step Twenty Three- Notch out a hole on the light cover so that both wires can exit without being pinched
Step Twenty Four- Put the cover on
Step Twenty Five- Screw in some light bulbs, I recommend day light bulbs for the best lighting to do make up and pictures.
Step Twenty Six- Plug in !
