apartment update

It's been a while since I gave an apartment update- and there have been some exciting new acquisitions.

1) Henny Ikea Blanket: I first saw this blanket over at The Brick House and new I loved it right away. Even though they don't carry it in the Ikea near Boston- they did have it at the Brooklyn Ikea I visited a few weeks ago. It looks great and is machine washable- which is a must with cats, as you can see.

2) Office Rug: Another Ikea acquisition. I have been holding off on blogging about the office until I file a little better about its progress- and I think its really coming together. Since it functions as an office, TV room, and dining room, we really don't need any other room in the house. Seriously, you could cut off the dining room, guest room, and living room, and we might not notice. As the Dude would, say, the rug "really ties the room together."

3) Lane Dovetail Side Table: We live by the BEST thrift store. I found this Lane Dovetail side table. They had two there, but one was seriously damaged dog chew marks. This one just needs a little refinishing. Despite being consistently sold on ebay for $200, I got this for $15. Thrifty! It might end up going to some friends who have the coffee table, but for now it works great as table in the office. I'll update once its refinished.
