we finally...finally...updated our outdoor lights. wahoo!
changing them out has been on my wishlist since the day we moved in. take a look at their crusty crustiness -- blech!!
grody!! why in the world did we take so long to change them?? it turns out we're extra-picky about outdoor lights. ...oh wait, it took us almost a year to choose a dining room light too...so i guess we're just picky about lights in general.
we ended up ordering these from home depot online:
finally! new lights!
they arrived in the mail about a week later. we bought two smaller fixtures to flank the garage and one larger light for beside the front door.
luckily, all the wiring was good -- it was just the bulbs that were bad.
i didn't get any pictures of fish hanging the new lights -- forgive me, i was napping -- but i think it was just a matter of connecting the wires and using a masonry bit to drill the new fixtures into the stone. not to make it sound like i could have gone out there and hung the new lights...
when i awoke from my nap......
here's the after:
...and compared to the old fixtures:
worth the wait, in our opinion...!
do you have any outdoor home improvement projects
you plan to tackle this summer?
