Here's a unique way to use your solar lights. They aren't just for the ground!

We took 2x4 and cut them into squares to fit the original existing posts. Using galvanized screws - Not nails - Screw a "L" bracket to the underneath base. Then on top, screw on the stake. Screw the whole block to the existing post. I then stained the block with Superdeck Redwood to match the fence.


It's really nice at night. It's nice to have lights up high, it really gives a romantic glow to our yard.

That's beautiful!! The lights that I have are the kind that hang on hooks that are driven into the ground. All I need is to install some hooks (maybe decorative plant hangers) and hang the lights on those. Thanks for the great idea!!

What a great idea. You did a really professional looking job on these. The night time pictures are very inviting. Enjoy these, all year long.

Great look! We did this kind of thing on our deck once. Hubby took them out later to remodel and I'm still waiting for them to be put back up!! ;-)
