Hi there again! I’m Shayna from The Wood Grain Cottage and I’m back to share another project with you. I don’t know about you, but I really love unique lighting that isn’t generic and can’t be found in every home. And because I have an obscene crush with farm related items, I really wanted to make a light out of an aged grain sieve.
