Lighten Up: Front Porch Lighting

 

Last month, bunches of my posts involved using up old craft supplies.  Now, it seems that I'll have a ton of home improvement projects, big and small.  Up first is a quick fix that anyone can do: updating the light on the front of your home.  Our whole street is full of houses with itty bitty lights out front.  Tiny porch lights are neither welcoming nor terribly illuminating.  So, I decided we needed to go bigger. 

Check out the before and after pictures and see if you don't agree: bigger is better!
Before
After!
Before: so small!
After: big and bright!
We also put in a tube to make our light go from dusk to dawn, saving energy!  What do you think?
