New Porch Lights!

We have had these up for 2 weeks now and I am just getting around to telling you!
When we moved in I almost immediately started replacing the outdated lighting.
I DIY'd some Pottery Barn Bellora Chandeliers, I DIY's some Blue Mason Jar Pendant Lights and have also replaced others...more on that later.

A few weeks back we had a reunion hosted at our place and I loathed the lights outside on the porch. I also hate the very gold brass handle and kick plate on the screen door!!  I'll have to deal with that later!  
I mentioned the light loathing to Mr. TSL and he asked that this be the light he was in charge of choosing.  
He has good taste, so this wasn't an issue.  He did marry me after all :)  Cost however, was an issue.

He showed me these lights from Barn Light Electric.
100W Atomic Cast Guard CGU Sconce, 96-Galvanized, Ribbed Glass

Love them, but with a price tag of $189.00 each---not happening!!  We need 2 and for $378, I could redo an entire bathroom...see that here :)

So, we set out to find similar, but way cheaper and did we ever!!  Over at Hardware World the Coleman Cable Industrial Light for $17.77!!!

Sold!!  Plus, it was in Kansas City, so it was super close and only took 1 day to get here!!
