Source for backlit vanity mirror?

ChristaMApril 29, 2013

Hi, hoping someone knows where to find backlit vanity mirrors? I want the kind where the edges of the mirror seem to float off the wall, like the Rifra brand. I don't want the kind where the lights show through the glass like electricmirror.

I also don't want to pay Rifra prices. Holy cow! It's just a mirror with LEDs wrapped around it, I don't need it dipped in gold and rolled in diamond dust or anything.

Christa;

I was in the same situation -- so we're making our own. I am using two oval mirrors with frosted edges, following enduring's lead (have you seen her finished bath w/ backlit mirror?) and will mount them on two "platforms" so they will float off the wall, and then am wrapping the platforms with superbright LED's from inspired lighting.com. I am going w/ the brightest LED's possible on a dimmer.

The BR gets ripped out Wednesday, and hopefully will be finished by the HS graduation party on the 2nd . . . . so I'll post pics then.

We're doing our own too in our son's bathroom. His mirrors will be mounted on a stacked slate wall so we have to build the mirrors out a little further.
