How to make your own vanity light…. Really simple to do and not expensive :)...Things you will need to buy
Vanity light bar you can get at Lowes, Home Depot or any other Home improvement store The 3- 4 lights range from $9.99 to $24.99 the one I have was $14.99 plus tax
next you will need a lamp cord with the on and off switch when I went to buy this...this is all they had
now the black piece where the light bulb goes I had to cut off with some wire cutters and strip a piece of the wire which is not hard to do when done this is what is should look like....
Now you can buy this already done they were just out. They are called lamp cord with spt-1 or you can get the spt-2 What’s the Difference?SPT-2 Cord has thicker insulation & a higher amperage rating, but both types are suitable for most household or craft indoor applications. SPT-1 = 7 amp rating & SPT-2 = 10 amp rating
Here is a website if your local area is out http://www.nationalartcraft.com/subcategory.asp?gid=1&cid=1&scid=3
So on the back of your vanity bar you should have two wires a white one and black one like this
Now you will then twist your wire caps on...... my vanity light came with 3 but you only need two you might want to ask if they come with your vanity lights I didn't know so I bought a bag for less then $3.00 so I have to take them back but just ask so you don't have to return anything, it will save you a trip back to the store :) if yours doesn't they do sell them for less then 3.00 here's what they look like and if you do have to buy them make sure they give you correct size that matches your lamp cord. After you twist you caps on tug lightly if it stays on then your good if the cap just comes off try twisting in opposite direction.
this is what is should look like when your done you can also get the black electric tape if for some reason your wires are long and hang down. Now just make sure you get the correct light bulbs and you should end up with nice working vanity lights hope this helps.... what I love about this is now you can take or move your light anywhere you want.
