Cozy Cabin Porch Light

I got some great feedback on my last post about which light to use for the front porch.  You influenced my decision!  

 I was leaning towards the lantern on the left, but ended up using the lantern on the right.

 It looks great.  One of the things I like about it is that it is roughly the same diameter as the logs on the front porch and a similar shape.

 I came across these plastic deer at an estate sale for 25 cents each.  I am going to use their antlers to add to the current antler chandelier in the living room.

 I made the current antler chandelier out of paper clay


  1. That lantern looks great. Suits the cabin.

  2. Oh Deer! I am afraid I would not be able to bring myself to "slaughter" those deer! LOL! You have a stronger stomach than I! But I can understand why you want the antlers! And the Lantern looks Great!

  3. That lantern is a good choice, Troy, it suits the cabin! The chandelier is great!
    Kind regards, Ilona

  4. Hello Troy,
    Great choice on the lantern. It looks just right in the picture. The antler idea is great...terrific find. The chandelier is perfect!
    I look forward to seeing more.
    Big hug,

  5. Great job on the antler light! The cabin looks like the ones we have stayed in when we have gone to the Smoky Mountains.

  6. Wise choice on the lantern,Troy. As for the antlers, I assume that you will wait for the deer to shed them. Then you can say that no deer were harmed in the making of the chandelier...

  7. The lantern and the chandelier are in the right place.
    Greetings, Faby

  8. Hi Troy, your work is very inspirational! I love the logs and i think it was a great choice of the lantern. Mini hugs, Natalia

  9. I loved all of your lanterns but good choice in using the one you put on. Nice idea using the antlers to make the chandelier and I was happy to read that....I'm not crazy about plastic animals... :)

  10. Love your lights but the antler chandelier is my favorite! Great job!
