Ideas & Inspiration: Outdoor Lighting

Yesterday, we spent the better part of our day off working on the outdoor area. First we searched Craigslist for a picnic table and umbrella, and then we moved outdoors to get our hands dirty. We finished Sunday with a quick trip to the store to pick up some new solar path lights to line our garden. A result of our own purchase research — a roundup of outdoor lighting inspiration, after the jump…
