DIY MID CENTURY MODERN DESK LAMP

I’ve never made anything involving electricity before, and I didn’t really know how, but thankfully my dad is the king of all things circuits, wires, soldering, electricity, blah blah blah, and he was willing to help! After my dad helped me make the first lamp, I was basically able to make the second lamp on my own — giving me hope that I can make some more for my own home and hopefully explain the process well here.

I always love reading the trend reports from NYFW and scrolling through photos and videos from the runway.

It was a really fun project and I was able to find and alter several pieces to create 3 final looks. If you haven’t seen my vlog of the whole process, watch it below!

HOW TO GET GOOD AT PHOTO EDITING

It took me a couple of years of trying different editing techniques before I felt like "okay, I'm good at this." I remember even 3 years ago, Nathan had to convince me that Lightroom would save so much time (I was even thinking of editing an entire wedding in Photoshop -- what?!) and now I can't believe I even questioned him. I was just intimidated to learn a new program, though, to be honest. I've never been the best about getting ahead of the game on new software and technology etc.
