Robin @ ReDo It Yourself Inspirations has post segments called "Cut the Cord". She provides so many clever ideas for outdoor lighting solutions sans conventional electricity.
A while ago I had seen a photo on Pinterest from her posts. Later I took a trip to a local flea market and found these lamps without shades that were perfect for this project.
I had not realized how almost identical they are to the ones used in the inspiration photo. Pretty close right?
I didn't glue the lamps on though. They actually fit right into the post so I don't think the glue is absolutely necessary. If I see that they get affected by wind then I'll glue them down. They turned out really cute though and make excellent front door accents.
I hope you give this a try too.
Solar is the future and the future is now!
