We received a bed set with a light tier over the bed. It had two side drawers tiers tall enough to hold over the mirror a bridge that housed 3-incandescent lights.   
This post shows seven steps to install the Xenon lamp into the metal lamp base. 

Step 1: Fig.1 shows the Jewel Screwdriver Phillip Tip that will be needed to install the Xenon lamp kit. Fig.2 shows the vinyl tape the will add another layer of protection to the lamp wires. Fig.3 shows the wires go through the top to the bottom of the lamp.
