Needed Lighting Inside & Side of My Shed Too -


I used candle light on the inside with a variety of holder I picked on the cheap over the years. Started with more candles on the out side of the shed my special sitting area, (a work in progress). I also bought some solar lights to help me find the lighter to light the candles & such.

I just love candle light. So soothing, I use scented ones for aroma therapy.

This is a tin wall lantern - I use an upside down porcelin pet dish so I could use just a votive candle. Worked well.

As you can see the shade needs one of my next projects. To keep the rain away from the wick & oil I placed a glass pot which has no hole -- Just for fun I rooting mum cluttings in it.

Someone tossed this old Oriental rug out to the curb - trash guys didn't take it so I did. The orange barrels beneath the chairs can be used for foot rests or extra side table. I got them off the side of the road years ago the have ply wood in the bottom. I have some work to do, to make it more private & need something for shade as well. Another project, to post at another time.
