Outdoor living is a year-round topic on Hometalk. Hometalk members are busy planning and maintaining outdoor living spaces from the heat of summer to the cold of winter. Some folks are professionals who post gorgeous pictures of the outdoor living dreamscapes they've built. Other folks are DIYers who are revamping their outdoor living areas, building outdoor furniture, or planning an outdoor living room for the first time. Whether you're a novice or an expert, join a conversation about outdoor living rooms on Hometalk.
I'm doing a screen porch makeover at the moment and wanted to add a bit of light over the drop-leaf table. Using some grapevine balls and white lights with brown wires I put together an little porch chandy in no time!

Bring some BLING to your garden or outdoor living area with this easy project...
Wire garden fencing is bent into circles, the ends bent into hooks, and hung with resin &

Creating an outdoor dining tablescape doesn't have to be difficult or expensive. Use items you already have on hand and freshen up with a few new decor pieces. Planning ahead means you're ready to host brunch at a moment's notice.
