We hope you will listen as that will allow us to keep bringing you more programs from experts in the porch industry. Thank you!
Jennifer adds subtle lighting to her porch year around with twinkly lights woven into her grapevine garland around her porch ceiling.
She even has a clicker inside her home that enables her to turn the porch lights on from the inside.
She tells us how she updates the grapevine for the various seasons and how she switches out the pillows.
She and her husband built this porch onto the back of her home and it's one of their most favorite places to be.
