I was looking for quality lighting for wood uprights on our deck stairs, a walkway and deck. The reliability wasnt there in other lighting i ordered and returned. I wanted lights that were classy looking and allowed for running the wire straight out the back for a clean look in front. These fixtures are gorgeous and look like smaller versions of lights youd see at a country club. Watching the vids several times along with the stickers that come with these lights made it easy and fun! My home is worth more now-these really take our backyard up a notch.
