I want to put 10 bulbs on our wall mirror to make it full size vanity. Here are my questions hope someone can help me .
- Is it OK to use 12gauge for 10bulbs 3W?
- I want to use plug for turning it on and off. Is it OK?
- Framing of my mirror is made of leather. Will it melt or something when the bulb becomes hot?
The lighted mirror will look something like this:
Instead of a metal frame, though, it will be covered in leather.
I'll be using 2 1/4" 4A 240V receptacles, I have available this 10A 250v plug:
And I am planning to buy this small switch:
I'll just use electrical tape to cover each connection. I'm not going use any other stuff.
If you guys have suggestions to make it better and safer please let me know because I'm just doing a DIY project here.
I hope you can make the explanation more understandable for people like me who knows basic electrical work only.
