Flavorful Outdoor Lighting

Repurpose / Refurbish

In the world of DIY design, there are so many opportunities for magic to happen. There are no boundaries fenced off by rules or “high-end” standards, just the freedom to create what “feels good”. These delicious examples of exterior lighting further illuminate the vastness of what’s possible when we continue to feel our way to making that something special, even when we’re totally in the dark as to how. Utilizing everyday items such as buckets to hanging flower baskets then using candles, pendant lights, and even the sun to make them shine, we can surely taste the sweet flavor-flave of do-it-yourself success.

    DIY anything is not only cost-efficient but it also brings out your creativity. Who could’ve thought that jars, buckets or old bottles can be used to make a romantic light setting outdoors? Everything look so romantic and serene! The thing that only worries me is the wind. Haha! What if a strong wind suddenly blew? Wouldn’t your lights go out? Haha! Despite that, I think the idea of using DIY outdoor lights is well-thought out. 🙂 http://www.outdoorlights.com/services/outdoor-path-lighting.html
