Anyways, I thought it would be really nice to have them on the deck in the summer. We grabbed two 8 foot 2"x2" pieces of wood that we had left over and spray painted them black so they would blend with our deck rails. We used black zap straps and secured them. So these will be super easy for us to remove (we were a bit nervous that strata could come after us). We screwed in a couple of hook-thingies (umm, ya) by hand and put up two strings of lights. It took us 45 minutes beginning to end! Here's how it turned out:
It was great for our Mexican Fiesta, and has been nice for extending our outdoor time with some romantic lighting. I don't know what it is about these lights, but they just have such a romantic vibe.
On another note, today is my dad's 60th birthday!!! Happy Birthday Dad!!!! xoxo.
