I've had an idea in my head forever to create this goodness on my patio and finally it all came together...with a little help from my friend and a friend or two at Home Depot and Lowes. I wanted to put lights up and wanted to find something that could attach to my concrete to hold a pole that would support lights being strung out to the edge of my patio. No store created anything like that, so it was suggested to me to use cinder blocks on the ground and then put pvc pipe in them to hold the lights. After some adjusting and glueing and fishing line. I have an awesome patio.
