Let There Be Light!

We finally got our lighting done for the balcony. We had a few delays due to rain and needing maintenance come to replace the rotting balcony railing. The lights we used can be found at Target: Frosted String Lights.  We used 3 strands to get the right look. What I really like about these lights is that there isn't a lot of extra cord between the plug and the 1st bulb. When the end of one strand is plugged into the next, you barely notice.

It took us a few tries to get them perfect, but love how they look. Each bulb also has a clip that makes it easy to install on the rain gutter. They just clip right in. It feels like a little outdoor cafe now. Now, we finally have enough light to entertain at night out on the balcony. 

You'll also notice that we decided to return the chairs and replace them with benches. The benches make it look like we have a little more room. Pin It
