    What are you guys using to hide black wire when you have white picketts on a deck? There is really no good way to use another type of fixture other the deck lighting.

    I am thinking about using those picketts that are cut in half with a dado where the middle is cut out and hide the wire like that. Then just paint the new pickett white. This is just a plain deck with white pickets that are vertical.

    Any ideas? Cheers

    They sell white cable on the market, or just paint the cable white.

    I've used spray paint in the paint. Quick and easy. I also try to hide as much wire as possible.

    Dont let the wire show. Either dado a double grove and replace with flat stock. Or atleast use some post hugger trim.
