After two weeks of nothing but rain, rain and more rain, the sun finally came out
last Sunday and the temperature went up to the mid 70's, so we decided
to do a lot of the much needed yard work.
As we were cleaning the front porch, I noticed how ugly our
outside lights looked. I thought it was dirt, had to be, we just bought these porch lights last year and paid $100 for each one of them!
When my husband took them down, we were in shock to realize, the color had faded.
Can you believe it??? I understand last summer the temperature went up
to 113 degrees, but this should not be happening, they are outdoor lights!!!!
They sure don't make things anymore like they used to.
So, back to Lowe's we went!!!
We found a good spray paint that we hope will last longer that
whatever they originally put on the lights.
This is what they looked like when we took them down.
The color was dark bronze when we bought them.
I can't get over it!
We decided to play it safe and just go with black.
I think they look good with my front door decor, since the bench
and the star on the wall are also black.
Don't they look so much better? Got to love spray paint!
We are sure loving this Spring like weather and trying to get ahead with all of our outdoor projects before the weather starts getting really hot, which it
won't be much longer here in Texas.
Next weekend, the flower bed.
It is like a jungle!
Can you believe my flowers that I planted last year are already blooming?
It is only February!
