Step 36: Lighting: Enough Talk, Let's Mount 'Em

Picture of Lighting: Enough Talk, Let's Mount 'Em
All that said, mounting your lights will depend on what you can find. I found this very neat light bar at Habitat for Humanity ReStore. It cost 1$. Similar light fixtures are often used in bathrooms above mirrors and should be easy to find. You could also light and wire some standard light sockets onto a board, or you could mount two gooseneck lamps. In any case, simply copy this basic idea and you'll be set. If you use this bar configuration, your lights will be easily positionable/adjustable which is exactly what you want them to be.

Clamp 'em in place to check your work.
