In my opinion, we live in the best little spot in Nashville. It's a wooded area that is peaceful but still close to everything. Our neighbors are great and we couldn't be happier here. We love sitting outside so we decided we needed some more cohesive lighting. We have had some string lights up but they just weren't doing the job...enter our newest project...Hanging Bamboo Lights. We wanted something modern yet natural and decided to make them ourselves. Since we don't have Bamboo in our yard I called upon my awesome MOMS club friends and asked if anyone else did and of course my mama's came through for us! I wish I had some video of me chopping these bamboo stalks down because that sure was a site to see.
I think the best part of the light is this awesome vintage type bulb. We also picked this up at the Home Depot for about $10 a piece. I know that's expensive for one bulb but to me it was totally worth it since we had everything else on hand.
And then the sun started to set just right for these photos.
Not bad, right? Especially when you figure we paid less than $50 for three outdoor lights when you factor in bulbs, wiring, etc. We couldn't be happier with how they turned out. We love them so much we're thinking of adding them to our patio as well. Do you have anything in your yard you could turn into a light?
