Texture & Trim In The Loft by The Wood Grain Cottage

Our online shop loft/ studio is coming right along. This past weekend, we were able to get everything painted, which was a small feat considering I had all the walls and the floor to paint. Since Anthony and I had to move everything out of the loft in order for me to paint the floors, {read more…}
