Add outdoor mood lighting for a big impact

We recently moved into our new (to us) home. One of the many things we absolutely love about this new house is the huge deck in the backyard. It is the ultimate party deck!

Here's what our deck looks like with the porch light that came with the house. Who wants to sit out there … [Read more...]
