One of my favorite rooms in our home is the front room. It has gorgeous bright light, and I purposely placed a huge table right in the center of the room. It’s become my working office. The studio downstairs has been great for crafting, shooting, and staging – but I prefer this light filled room for my daily computer work.
Since the room is not a purposed office, I often find myself in need of a quick place to jot a note, or remind myself of something. Enter in lampshade!
I found this easy trick while in a bind one day and noticed my simple linen lamp shade works just like a cork board – without the usual office feel to it.
To create the look, I use pushpins to keep important notes nearby – and the pins don’t even leave a mark when the note has served its purpose. It’s a simple and easy solution for small spaces and combined offices.
Since I sit and type/edit/email most mornings under this pinboard light – I love having the option to put on a pair of great reading glasses to reduce the constant strain on my eyes. But finding pretty glasses to go with my easy light hack isn’t always that simple. Which is why I am excited to be partnering with Glasses.com today and tell you about their easy at home try-on idea.
Simply order your set of frames (up to four!) from their online shop, and they’ll ship them for free for you to try on for a whole week. I love the idea of working with a product at home before committing to it. Plus, getting to see the frames in different lights, and with different looks, was really fun.
I ended up falling for the Havana in Opal, a hard toss-up because I also loved the Vince Camuto. There’s also an I-pad try on version you can try by uploading your photo – which you could do while sitting at the computer. If you are in need of new glasses its a great way to go.
