The bathroom in my new apartment is sorely lacking in light. There is a wall of ceramic tiles blocking the light from the ventilator fan/light fixture reaching the shower, and its just in a bad place frankly. I don't even get enough light at the mirror due to the angles.
Since I can't/won't make any structural changes, I wanted to see if there was any issues with the following:
Using this MDF Wainscot panel (I will be cutting it down to a single 2ft x 1ft panel):
And this 75W (13W) LED down light or similar, very thin, has bare wire or edison adaptor:
And wire it to a standard lamp wire:
Essentially, make a small box with the LED, hang it on the wall and plug it in, instead of direct wire?
Wires obviously inside the box. May just use the edison adapter if the lamp cable has the same edison base size, so no twist nuts.
The MDF I'll paint with latex paint on the sides and back, and it won't be near water. It will go over the mirror/cabinet, and the outlet is a GFCI. US 120v.
