When we started this little blog years ago, we dreamt of working with large and reputable corporations – one of the companies at the top of our list was The Home Depot. So, needless to say, we were giddy with excitement to join the DIY concrete challenge at The Home Depot Blog.

We hadn’t worked with concrete before, and honestly, we can’t wait to work with it again. After happily spending hours in The Home Depot, we stayed in a semi-comfortable DIY zone and opted for a somewhat simple project to add outdoor lighting to Jessica’s patio.

We created rustic string light poles with a concrete base.

Our mom was the first to see the DIY concrete project; in fact, she helped mix the concrete. She loved it so much, she requested a DIY concrete stand to string lights in her backyard, too.
