After a whole year of writing articles about pretty houses, I finally took some of my own medicine and actually DID one of the tips that I tell people to do: I spray painted two grungy brass lamps for a clean, modern look.
It was really easy, and the new shades made my living room so much brighter. Though I’d like a vibrantly colored shade, I have to stick with neutral tones for now to avoid clashing with the rest of the room.
See one of my older articles here, where it’s been edited for the online mag. Sometime I’ll tell y’all about how my freelance experience has helped my novel writing, but that can come later 🙂
