Lighting up the Night!

A few weeks back McG installed a new dining room light for his sister.  When he was finished they said that they were just going to throw the old one away.  He knew that I would most likely be able to find somewhere for it to go and so he hauled it home for me.  I tell you that man knows me so well!!

I had him cut out the wiring.

He drilled holes in the cups so that they wouldn't hold water.

I purchased five solar lights from the local Dollarama - a total cost of $15.  He then cut down the posts to cover the white electrical stems on each arm of the light.

They were a little bigger in diameter, so he first covered them in a few turns of electrical tape.

 He cut the posts to length with a hack saw and added them to the fixture.

Then we hung it from a shepherd's hook by the patio in the back garden.

It's the perfect compliment to our yard and light's up the night with soft white light, and....

adds some elegance to our backyard for very little money!
