Get ready for before and after photos.
Poke around any corner of the internet right now and you’ll eventually find somebody posting their outrageous “quarantine project!” before and after photos, like how they transformed some decrepit alley behind their house into a zen garden with a water feature and Instagram-worthy accent lighting.
Well why’d you let that spot look so miserable in the first place, hot shot? And where do you think the rabid raccoon family is going to live now? Bet you didn’t even think of the rabid raccoon family before you shooed them away with a broom to make room for your gently distressed Live-Laugh-Love sign.
Thinly-veiled sarcastic jealousy aside, it really would be nice to knock out an easy project or two.
Well here’s a twenty dollar, twenty minute project that can do exactly that. Get yourself a twelve-pack of solar pathway lights, snap those suckers together, and stick ‘em in the ground. In less time than it takes you to stream a 90s sitcom you’ve seen eleven times before, you could be lighting up your front walk or tastefully accenting the back yard.
They charge during the day, they glow during the night, and they’ll generally improve the ambience of pretty much anywhere you put them.
It just might be the the ridiculously easy, budget-friendly project that gives you the best possible bang for your buck.
Have an unusually long walkway? Buy 24. Live on a palatial estate with a private drive? Get 200 and we’ll send them right to your groundskeeper.
Just don’t forget to take a “before” photo or you’ll have completely squandered your social media post.
