Lamppost Love


Do you have a lamppost that is an eyesore? This project was inexpensive and incredibly easy. Honestly, it is mindblowing how a little sweat and spraypaint can make a huge difference. 

Here are the steps I took to turn our dingy, dusty pink lamppost into a nice, welcoming feature to the Quarry's front entrance. 


Step 1: Pick out your pole color.

Run to your nearest hardware store and grab a bottle (or two) of outdoor metal spray paint. 


Step 2 & 2.5: Wipe the pole down with a damp rag. Proceed to spray paint that sucker following the instructions on the can.

If you are keeping your topper, wipe it down and tape off the glass. We tossed our topper in the trash and opted to purchase a new one online. 

Step 3: Install your new topper. 

P.S. I did the ultimate blogging oops and cannot remember where ours is here are a few options to get you started on your post light search.

Step 4: Landscape around that beautifully redone babe

I first got on my "light pole" kick when I noticed that Blue Stone Perennials actually has pre-planned gardens specifically for lampposts.

This isn't a sponsored post. I just LOVE these guys and the convenience of having someone map out the perfect blend of flowers for our space. Our pre-planned garden was delivered right on time and in wonderful shape.


Step 5: Map out your flower bed and then plant


Step 6: Walk by your front window to stare at your new lamppost at least 3 times the first day.

Does anyone else have a horrible lamppost?
Share a before and after picture below. I would love to see how it turns out!
