The Easiest DIY Patio Upgrade

Happy Friday Friends!

I took another *wee* break from writing and creating new projects on this blog because like I mentioned a hundred times we moved houses but ALSO (!!) because I have some really fun things lined up for late summer. Stay tuned for more of that next month.When we moved to our new place one of the things I loved most about our unit was the fact that we had a walk up, a front door, and a huge porch for our plants.

One idea we threw around to DIY the space was adding lights but we put it on the back burner until a very intriguing project idea from Jasco Products came my way. They just released lights that change color, yes you heard that right they CHANGE COLOR. As a color loving maximalist this thrilled me and I knew I had to share these with you guys.But we before we jump in, here is something I want you to know about this post!

Our porch is a pretty simple space, and with the help of my brother we were able to install these beauties in about twenty minutes. My brother is a perfectionist when it comes to home improvement and as a result the lights are perfectly aligned with our overhead beams. What a gem!

Something awesome about these lights is the way they hang, it made it super easy to keep uniformity when stringing your lights or screwing them into various surfaces. If you need some ideas for hanging or installation, this pinboard really helped me brainstorm!

After a quick installation, things get wild fun and you can customize the color of your strand! What’s so awesome about this is you can select up to two colors from the color remote, or choose from the presets, you can even dim the lights if you want a simple white look. The remote is also a small size and will operate up to 750 feet away, this thrills me because I don’t have to go outside to turn them on and off and can use it from the window.

There are colors in the presets for various holidays and occasions like Christmas colors, Fourth of July, Autumn, Halloween, and even Pride! We got them in June so ours have been set to a vibrant rainbow for a few weeks 🙂

Here are some of the pre-sets that I have been loving and can’t wait to use them for future holiday seasons!

I love these and think they are such a great addition to our little porch, I put this post under the DIY category because this is an easy little project to get you ready for summer evenings. Here is a link to these color changing lights if you think that they would be a good fit for your outdoor space.
