I love lanterns and deck lights, but the PRICE of some. I looked at several stores and online, but a single lantern can cost from $59 to over $100! String lights can be expensive too. So...I hit the thrift stores.
Time: 4 HoursCost: $35Difficulty: Easy
I hung the lanterns on the deck. My husband put up little cast iron hooks. I also love globe lights. I found a set on sale for half price and we strung them. Yes, they are asymmetrical on purpose.
Suggested materials for this project:
- Lanterns (Local thrift stores.)
- Globe lights (Big lots store.)
- Rope light (Lowes)
