Please help me light up my life.

I have converted the top half of our hall closet into a little standing dressing area that holds my jewelry box and mementos. There is a mirror over my jewelry box on the back wall of the space. How do I light it?

This space is at the end of a narrow hallway and is meant to be a place to put on my jewelry and take a last look at my face before I head out the door. The hallway light is a typical dim ceiling-mounted fixture in a 1950's-era house that just makes everything look muddy and casts a shadow into the space when I'm standing in front of it.
I would like to have a small lamp inside the cabinet to illuminate it well but there is no electricity in it. I tried a small fluorescent bulb, but it isn't strong enough and I'm imagining those tap on/off lights won't be either.
Your ideas, please?
