Bathroom Mirror

As with many things in the house, I tend to gravitate towards older used stuff when possible to get a more individualized feel. I already had the Ikea sink, so I didn't want to add to that look by getting a plastic Ikea mirror. I wound up buying and estate sale mirror with a wood frame. Probably about 50 years old (like me) and in pretty good shape (like me). 
I had already laid the low voltage wiring for lighting the bathroom but, had not picked out the method in which I wanted to do so. Always a fan of indirect light, I opted to back light the mirror. To do so I glued a 2x4 (2x3?) base onto the mirror. The exterior of that surface was then wrapped in an LED strip which I bought off of Ebay. Here are some pictures since that makes it easier to visualize.
 This is the backing I put on the mirror.

This is what it looks like when connected and turned on. Picture doesn't really do it justice. I'm very happy with the result.
