Music has been a huge part of our lives (John and me) ever since we can remember. It’s what we all bonded over in our group of friends back when we all met in high school, and, to this day, listening to those songs that we grew up with brings back the absolute best memories. I feel like I need to write a book about my teenage years. It was that magical. Sure, it was angsty and emotional, but our little group of six or seven friends had the very best of times together. We’re talking late-night bonfires, climbing fences on our friends’ farmland to watch the sunset, parking our cars in new subdivisions and playing the radio as loud as we wanted while talking about anything and nothing at all…It was really, really good.

Fast forward to today, and John and I are still playing all those favorites from our most nostalgic playlists inside our home—possibly this year more than ever since we’ve spent so much extra time inside our little retro ranch because of COVID. The one genre we always come back to (and the one we always agree on) is ’90s music. We love nothing more than to kick back on the couch with glasses of wine, and our Model One BT radio from Tivoli Audio pumping out the tunes. A few favorites include Gin Blossoms, Blues Traveler, and Soul Asylum.

We just recently added this radio to our living room shelves, and absolutely love it. It’s a beautiful design, but even more important than that is the function. The radio and speakers might look small, but, man, can they wail! The sound is incredible, and so worth the investment, in my opinion. John’s family has been a loyalist to this speaker brand for years, so we were really confident about following their lead. It plays the radio (of course), which I appreciate so I can listen to NPR during the day to keep up with news, and the bluetooth function syncs easily to our phones so we can play music from our Spotify playlists in the evening.

Puck Light Trick On A Porch Light

Puck Light Trick On A Porch Light

I don’t know about you, but I’m notorious for forgetting to turn the porch light on before I leave the house in late afternoon for a few hours. That usually means I’m left to fumble around in the pitch black trying to find my keys when I get home again after dark. We don’t have a motion-sensor light anywhere, so it’s always a big annoyance, and I end up mentally kicking myself for not thinking ahead.

So, I finally decided to do something about it. I’ve seen so many people use what they call the “puck light trick” on their lights, and I thought our covered porch light could be the perfect place to give it a shot on our terms. If you’re just now hearing about the “trick,” you essentially are able to install a sconce or light anywhere you want without having to put it over a hardwired electrical box. Just put a battery-powered puck light inside the fixture so you can get a stream of light without hard-wiring or calling an electrician.

We don’t happen to have an electrical box on the wall under our covered porch, so I just hung an outdoor sconce on the brick, and stuck a motion-sensor puck light up inside the fixture. There’s a little more to the project then that, but I’m sharing the full tutorial and linked supply list over on Hunker so you can learn how to do the same on your own covered porch.

Truth be told, I’m not going out all that often these days as I continue to socially distance, but I’m sure the motion-activated puck light will come in handy whenever I do happen to go out after dark and forget to turn the overhead porch light on. Now, I can just wave my hand under the puck light to get it to turn on so I can find my keys in my bag. Full project details this way! Have you tried the “puck light trick” yet? I’m excited to try it inside our house next.
