Indeed, I’ve been posting about Ikat & Batik’s etsy shop a lot lately (check out my GIVEAWAY going on through Thursday below) .  But their stuff is pretty darn awesome, so I’m not feeling bad about being redundant.   I just got my pillow covers in the mail, took a trip to Michael Levine downtown for inserts on the cheap and Voila!  Our living room looks 10 times better.

 Remember, this is what it looked like before, right after we painted the coffee table.  The other thing I did was replace my dorm room poster with the ginormous painting on the back wall. The painting is not done by any means (I think I spent a total of 2 hours painting it thus far), but I’m having to take a painting hiatus, and a birdie told me to go ahead and put it in it’s place in the meantime.  Even thought it’s not done, it looks WAY better than the poster.  I get to live with it for a while and consider what to do next with it.  I’m thinking to complete this side of the room, I just need a fiddle leaf fig in the corner.
