I asked one of the Home Depot employees about my choice in an extension cord. I know this sounds silly to some but I wanted to make sure my cord would be adequate for the voltage usage. The last thing I need is a house fire. I told him what I wanted to do with my light and ask if this was a good choice. He agreed with this so at that point I was able to purchase my extension cord with confidence. :) These are pretty inexpensive and only costs a few dollars. I couldn't find this particular one on Home Depot's website but found this 6ft version for only $1.47.
Now, I knew I didn't want to attach my lights to the wall so I decided to attach some hanging hardware. In order to do that, I attached my light to a 24" long piece of 1/2" x3.5" wood.
Before attaching my light to the wood I needed to pre-drill my holes and then I used random spare screws I had in my tool drawer to attach my light fixture to my wood piece.
The height on it is adjustable which is perfect. Now I can take my light with me for when I do theater projects and the lighting is terrible when getting dressed or doing my makeup. I am in love with how it turned out! This coupled with the wireless remote... YES! Here's some more pics...
