So as you wander the aisles of the big box store looking for an inflatable reindeer for the front yard, you spot a pretty cool light for the front door.
Too bad it only comes as a pendant, not a wall sconce.
When you find the perfect light fixture here at Barn Light Electric, chances are pretty good that you can customize it to your heart’s content. Take the Seaside Radial Wave Reflector for instance. This delightfully wavy shade is hand crafted right here in our own manufacturing facility, and we have a laundry list of options for you to choose from.
So how do I customize thee? Let me count the ways….

It’s been a wild and wacky winter so far and, technically, it’s not even winter yet! In some parts of the southeast, there was snow on November 1st yet temps reached into the 70s on December 1st. You just never know what winter may bring unless you live in Woodstock, Vermont, like our friend Sophia, where you are pretty much guaranteed to have your fair share of snow and ice this time of year.
And when you have wild winters, you need outdoor lighting that can stand up to Mother Nature. Sophia recently updated some of the exterior lighting on her historic home which was built in 1840. An addition was put on in the 1990s, and Sophia bought the... Read More

If you’re addicted to HGTV like we are, you no doubt have seen the wildly popular Cousins Undercover show starring Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri. The show just wrapped up its second season which features surprise renovation makeovers for local heroes in neighborhoods across the country.
In addition to his television commitment, John has spent the last six years working in the family business — Brunelleschi Construction — and looking for a place to put down his own roots. While driving to work one day, John’s wife spotted a For Sale sign. She insisted that John come take a look at the property.
“It was very deceiving because the... Read More
Surrounded by palm trees and the warm salt air of the nearby Intracoastal Waterway, Doug of Lighthouse Point, Florida, has no trouble feeling like he lives in the Sunshine State. His home, however, lacked the old Florida feel he wanted, so he started remodeling to bring some Key West character and charm to the late 1960s-era home.
“I tried to make the house look like an old Florida home with lap board siding and tongue-and-groove accents,” Doug says. When he started looking for exterior lighting, he wanted something that would last.
“I had some fixtures that didn’t last a year, so I wanted something durable for our salt air environment,”... Read More
Today we consider the humble garden shed. This utilitarian structure takes on many forms — from a simple lean-to to one of those two-story, metal monstrosities dropped on your lawn by the local big-box store.
Every now and then we find a customer who raises the bar on garden shed design, and today we feature Susan in Pennsylvania who did just that. A horticulturist and botanical illustrator, Susan owns a fair amount of garden equipment.
“I wanted my tools to be readily at hand,” Susan explains. “I wanted them to be housed in a structure that would not only be functional but also add charm to the landscape.” Susan turned to Ken Smith,... Read More
