Bathroom light placement problem
I am in the process of replacing my old bathroom vanity bar light with one that has a single, smaller point of contact with the wall. The issue I have is that the place where the new light should go to be centered on the sink is right where a stud is. There isn't a mounting box, so I need to add one somewhere, but if I put it next to the stud, the light doesn't line up with the sink. What's the best way to proceed?

- shallow box on top of stud or, even, on top of wall surface, depending on fixture's ability to conceal
- reframe wall(?!)
- remove some material from stud (load bearing or other structural concerns?)
