You Light Up My Life

In our hood, there are no street lights. Every house just has a post lamp at the end of its driveway. Small problem… About six months ago, the light sensor went out and ours stopped automatically coming on every night. Oh yeah, it was also really ugly.

So, with a dark sidewalk and a house that’s been lacking numbers since we repainted, I set out on a mission to build a new lamp post with a few tricks up its sleeve.

I bought a new lamp online, grabbed some supplies at HD, and went to town on the old post. Two days later, we have a cedar-clad post with illuminated house numbers, an outlet for Christmas lights, and a beautiful craftsman light on top.

Your move, Joneses.
