In case you missed it, here is the previous link for this now-completed project:
All I can say is: It’s freaking amazing to have working lights in the back yard!!! And they look so pretty:
I’ve lived in the condo since 2012. For the first 2 years, I didn’t even realize the ugly black things stuck to the wall in the back yard were the remnants of old flood lights:
I mean, YUK.
Last year I finally recognized them for what they were, and this year I did something about it!
After spending hours scouring the internet for yard lights, hubby and I narrowed it down to 4 choices:
I liked the Kenroy Home one the best [#3] & hubby liked the Designers Edge Industrial one the best [#4]. And since hubby’s choice would save us $180 [we needed two], and I also liked the industrialness of #4, we went with that one. I also like that many people on Amazon posted pictures of the cages of their industrial lights spray painted different colors – white, black, purple. Hubby suggested we leave them grey for now, so I said OK – but it’s nice to know it’s an easy fix if we decide they’d look better white or black. They arrived on Sunday [it’s always weird getting mail on Sunday], and I spent a whopping 20 minutes hanging them up. So easy. Connect the wires and screw the base to the wall:
Screw in a lightbulb [we used 75W LED standard-sized bulbs], screw on the glass cylinder, and screw on the cage over the glass. So easy! And we love how they look:
Here’s another view of the finished product at sunset last night:
LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!

Here are some random photos for your viewing pleasure. A few shots from my most recent walk through Ipswich:
Our house looked so pretty walking home across the Ipswich Green:
