Hey there! This is something new I don’t share often about. I LOVE a good project! Especially if it comes with a dramatic before/after photo. While this project wasn’t overly dramatic, a few small changes during our master bedroom refresh turned our room from a cave I didn’t enjoy, to a room I never want […]
