I've been meaning to design and build a makeup battlestation for Liz for a while. For those of you unfamiliar with the term, a battlestation is what makeup junkies call the area where they apply their makeup.

Liz prefers to do her makeup standing up at a wall mirror, so I figured I would start with that. I just had a basic door hang mirror with a wooden frame (like this one). Thus I decided to build everything around that mirror. The following describes the parts I used and how I assembled it. Anyone with basic construction skills can easily do the same.

Design Requirements

  • Full length standing mirror
  • Bright, white direct lighting
  • Fan for ventilation
  • Clock


  • 12v power supply
  • LED strip lighting
  • LED strip light housing
  • LED dimmer
  • hookup wire
  • barrel crimp connectors
  • Kitchen clock
  • usb fan
  • on/off switch


  • Crimper / wire stripper
  • Stapler
  • Drill
