Step by Step: LED Vanity Mirror in a Picture Frame with dimmer ( DIY )

This is a video showing the step by step process I went through to turn a picture frame into a LED lit vanity mirror with a dimmer. The process was a little bit complex since I’ve never soldered before, but it turned out alright! Thanks for looking everyone!

Edit: For everyone asking what dimmer/lights/etc: they were as follows:

Hi! I used the frame from, along with the LED’s. They were the “SUPERNIGHT (TM)Cool White LED Strip Light Plug-To-Use Kit, 5M or 16.4Ft, SMD3528, 300 LEDs, With 12 Volt Transformer And Dimmer”. Along with that, just a regular 16″ square glass frame, and some white spraypaint to mask off the sides!

    This looks really awesome and I would love to build this myself, but you
    have no instruction listed and there’s no sound, just video. So, I would be
    guessing. Can you please list instructions or add sound?

    How long you’ve been this project?!

    How much money invested?!

    This type of light is expensive?!

    Where can I buy the lights?!

    You have a list of all the things that you used … Thanks

    Good video, but needs some background music. I’m thinking Slayer or Pantera
    would be most appropriate.
