Rachele Dudely | Outdoor Lighting Ideas

Adding outdoor lighting, whether in front of your home for curb appeal, or to outdoor living spaces can make summer evenings spent at home delightful. There are many many options for landscape lighting and accent lighting. But here I wanted to assemble a list of mostly DIY lighting ideas that can make your outdoor living space magical without breaking the bank.
