Been posting in the "Home Improvement" thread about this.
Figured i would start my own instead of hijacking that one over and over.
Here is where is starts. Last for about 10 posts.
Now, I went to put up the mirror and I have this....
The mirror my wife picked out was a hell of lot bigger than i had planned for. And it covered up my electrical box for my light.
Also, the mirror has a sort of crown molding on the top. And the light she wants hits the top of the mirror when its mounted flush to the wall.
So first, i have to move my box up about 9 inches. Then I have a problem. As you can see in the 3rd pic, the light overlaps the mirror trim by about 2 inches. I need to find some way to extend the box out about 2 inches and make it look good. Like in the 4th pic. In this pic, I'm holding the light about 2 or 3 inches away from the wall. And it sticks out over the mirror trim.
My only options i see are to (1.) get an different light that extends out farther from the base, or (2.) make a small bulkhead over the mirror and mount the box to that and use my existing light.
