Favorite Things: This Lighted Mirror with 8x Magnification
This 8″ hardwired magnifying mirror has been a lifesaver for plucking eyebrows, finding wayward eyelashes and meeting the needs of teenagers on board our RV. 😉 When we were installing a privacy wall between our bathroom and bedroom on board our 1998 Foretravel U320, we had the opportunity and electricity to add a makeup mirror on the new bathroom wall. We took it and we’re so happy we did – functional and attractive, this mirror works well for our needs and swings out of the way up against the wall when not in use. This was a “less than $100, less than one afternoon” project that has added to the beauty and functionality of our vanity area. LOVE IT.
Jerdon HL75G 8.5-Inch Lighted Wall Mount Makeup Mirror with 8x Magnification
Our makeup / magnification mirror is made by Jerdon and is double-sided with 8x magnification on one side and a regular mirror on the other. Both sides are lighted, and the articulated arm allows you to move the mirror closer to you, or swing it to the other side of the counter if you need to make space for someone else in the bathroom – and who doesn’t in an RV bathroom?!
We ran the 110v electrical line along a channel next the countertop, and up to the light behind a piece of wood trim. This DIY project exceeded our expectations and the lighted mirror has been a great addition to our bathroom – it even doubles as a nightlight!
