Light emitting diodes or more commonly referred to as LED’s are pieces of electrical equipment or components that will emit light when connected to or within a direct current.

Important Elements of Shabby Chic Design

Shabby chic isn’t always frills and lace. It’s a combination of comfort and the charms of eclectic imperfection.
