Auto On Vika Vanity
Materials: Black Vika Viene table top, Vika Legs, Mirrors, LEDs, Reed Switch
Description: After seeing the previous Vika Vanity on here I knew I had to make one for my girl friend as she did not have a place to get ready in the mornings
I bought a black Vika Veine table top, attached the legs, placed (2) 12×12 mirror tiles from Home Depot ($10 for a 6 pack) with velcro and ran the LED strip.
The LED strips have adhesive on the back so it worked out great, very simple. I then wired in a Reed Switch so that when the top is opened the LEDs come on automatically.
The Wifey spruced it up with some matching fabric in red with sparkles as well as all her makeup.
The side unit has all her bottles, nail stuff and irons and I believe I saw our kitchen sink somewhere in there as well.
She’s in love
