    Patio String Lights

    Our dear friend Julie, from the popular blog redhead can decorate will be reviewing one of our most popular items.  It is the Outdoor Patio String Lights.  Since the early spring this item has been flying off our shelves faster then we can stock them. She did run a giveaway but it's over now, and one lucky winner got two of those string lights.

    Since this article was written a year ago I have some update on our patio string lights. 

    The new patio string lights include LED bulbs now.

    LED Patio Sting Lights

    I know you must be thinking LED bulbs will not look as authentic with those original strings lights.  Well, not necessarily!  Our LED Patio String Lights come with a 1-watt warm 2200K bulbs.  It will really be difficult to tell the difference between the LED and incandescent bulbs.

    Now, for the best part: 

    1. The bulbs will last you 10 times longer than the incandescent bulbs.

    2. They are shatter-resistant LED Bulbs.

    3. You will save huge on your electricity!  The 1-watt bulbs vs. the 11-watt bulbs on this sting.  With the LED it will be 24-watt to light the entire string vs. 264-watt.  And that is just for one sting of 24 bulbs.  Most of us use more than one of those stings at a time.  

    If you use two of those in your patio: 

    LED total wattage (1-watt bulb):  48 Watt

    Incandescent total wattage (11-watt bulb): 528 Watt

    So, the price maybe just a little higher, $20.00 in this case but I truly believe it is well worth it.

    I’m a huge fan of the vintage bulb look and I’ve made several indoor fixtures that use them. However, I’d love to extend that look to our pool deck and bring a real splash of class to our evening swims. These lights will be just the ticket!

    I would use these vintage lights on our screened in porch we are building. They are beautiful.

    Would love these on my Plantation style patio and railings. They would light up my front just perfect. Love the old look.

    Simply love the selection of bulbs! I really love the Outdoor Patio selection! I teach a Saturday Bible Study class with my friends grandchildren and children. During the summer months, we’ve switched the times to evenings. These lights would be wonderful to decorate my deck so that the children could enjoy some outdoor learning!

    Looking to create an under deck oasis.
    It will allow a quiet shaded area around the pool… the lighting will set the mood and allow for evening activities…

    I would string them from my house to my lemon tree across my courtyard to give it a more Barn Dance kind of feel outside! Gives a great warm light that compliments firelight really well.

    I love how you take something so simple and make it even simpler. The multiple photos showing the finished look of your project are really inspirational.
    If I could win a set of these string lights I would install them around my fence in the back yard and since the lamps hang down I can share light with my neighbor. We have tried adding Solar LEDs to the top of the posts between our yards to help illuminate them but they really do not put that much light out and not for long. We could hang every other one back and forth so we could light up 2 yards. That would help with his small children and my small pets.

    We live in a house built in the 1930’s out in the country. Vintage lighting from Nostalgic Bulbs would be a great way to accent the exterior of this old home. I have purchased from Nostalgic Bulbs always receiving great quality products. Supplies for vintage restoration projects are readily available from Gabi.

    These are exactly what we were looking for to light up our yard for our sons grad party! And Julie did an amazing job showing them off on her deck!

    I’m familiar w/patio lighting, but would of never thought of placing the lights lower on a porch. Plus, vintage looking lights, love nostalgia!
    I’m going to pass this clever idea onto my daughter, she has a large outside patio. I pass many ideas onto her, from you!
    You cease to amaze me!

    Love your light bulbs!!! We just redid our pool/courtyard and I can picture them in several places out there. At our age (81 and 93) we can remember when they were invented – - – well, almost.
