After weeks of finishing up a project in my workshop, it's always a treat to spend a couple days styling the final piece. It's even better when you have a serious plant-lady friend who can help you bring the backdrop of your dreams to life.

In this case, my good pal ErinBeth of Ethel helped me install the above monstera leaf behemoth. I gave the site a little makeover to go with it all, and you'll see some new pieces in the shop. Here are some process shots of the day.

Erin is one of the best folks around and runs a little plant studio here in Austin called Ethel where she does plant installations, botanical styling, and all around plant voodoo. I couldn't have pulled this off without her help--she also makes a little cameo in my shop.
