units are wall-mounted with fluorescent lamps attached to the tops and both sides; the lamps are covered on the sides with a hinged piece of frosted glass, which acts as a diffuser. [The shelves just behind the faucets are also made of a thicker frosted glass, below which is more fluorescent lighting.]
from the wall a few inches, enough room to mount flourescent lights behind all 4 sides of the mirror, if memory serves me right. It's a very nice, even, indirect light. Thanks again.
Good planning is the primary tool for most any project. I hope your project goes well--and that you post some pictures when it's finished!

the pony wall is hollow--can use for storage. Like the full vanity better than single.
