Unfortunately, our house was built-in 1954 and lacks of all those cool features some older homes and industrial lofts have.We have worked very hard trying to give this 1950’s ranch style home some character. Today, I would like to share with you this faux brick wall I did a few months ago. This is one of my favorites projects I have done in our house so far.
