We built an acadian style home with a front and back porch. We hung in on the back porch about a YEAR AGO...still looks like the day we hung it, Very good quality and just beautiful. you will need addtional hardware but it is SOOOO WORTH IT. I hope everyone enjoys this purchase as much i do, I WAS THE BEST THING I HAVE EVERY PURCHASED ON OVERSTOCK...LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!
