Blog feature on Barn Light Electric!

Guys, I am having one of those NAILED IT! design fail weeks. I started to prep the walls of the studio to paint, but realized I’d have to skim coat most of the room to do a decent job. I started to paint a set of shelves and realized that I was just kind of […]
