It is Week 3 of the Curb Appeal Blog Hop! The first week I shared the ‘before’ photos and my future plans on how the spruce up the front porch. The second week I shared the newly painted door (from brown to white) and the monogramed decal I added to it. I also shared our newly stained bench (still waiting on the new cushion). Today I am sharing our new outdoor wall light!
I’ve been wanting to get a new outdoor wall light for our porch for awhile now. I’m not sure how old the existing light was, but we’ve been at this house for over 10 years and have never replaced it. It was faded and well, it just looked old… it needed to be replaced! I was excited to work with Lamps Plus on finding a new light. They had so many outdoor lighting options. After browsing their site and reading several reviews on various lights, I selected the Bellagio Collection 24″ High Outdoor Wall Light. This light came preassembled and is larger than our old light. I love the champagne hammered glass, the scroll design on the top and bottom and the bronze finish.
Here is a comparison photo, in the first photo (left) you’ll see the new light and in the second photo (right) you’ll see the old light.
And, this is what the light looked like after it was taken off the house. It isn’t attractive at all!
My husband was kind enough to install the light and I had him write up a review about the installation and also he added some tips for installing a light. I think you’ll enjoy it. 🙂

We had a really good experience with Lamps Plus and I will consider them again in the future! They are the nation’s largest lighting retailer. They were founded in the 1970’s and strive to offer top of the name brands, wonderful service, a large selection (over 70,000 designs) and good value. They sell a variety of items, including chandeliers, lamps, wall lights, home decor and more.
