Dimming an LED

Hey everyone,

I would like to dimm an LED in my bathroom. But I am quiet lost to be honest. What do I need for that? Can anyone help?

Thanks Lisa

You can dimm a led by using analogWrite() over a pin which supports PWM. But your question is kind of broad.

A (CMOS) NE555 would do just fine if you are going to use a potentiometer in any case. It is not obvious what this has to do with microprocessors; and it seems you have not been back to look at answers either.
