That's a nice looking lamp post. It is much nicer than I expected when you said it was made out of PVC. Is it electric or is that a solar light?
Thank you!! It is electric, used an outdoor green extension cord, cut the end off and wired it to the lamp. Plugs up nicely to either the exterior plug on the camper. The light bulb is one of the new CFL's.

That is fabulous!
As Texas said, looks nicer in the photo than what you described! If it's a solar, I would love to carry one in my RV to put it outside.
Thank you. As stated above, it is electric, however, a solar powered one would be just as easy to make. Hardest part would be figuring out just which light you wanted. I picked up all the materials at Lowes for around $45.

Oh THIS is totally cool !!!
What type of paint did you use on that PVC ?
The only thing I painted was the light housing. I could only find that style in black. So I primed and painted it white. The PVC is already white. Just have to use the PVC solvent to clean the ink printing off of the PVC. Then just let it dry completely and clean it with any standard spray cleaner like 409, or even glass cleaner. Being white, it will get a few marks on it, but it will come clean with a quick shot of cleaner. I have seen them painted black and gold, but that may be a pain, as the paint would probably scrape off of the PVC easily.
