Photo Shoots & Sneak Peeks

By |August 19th, 2016|


I know you do it too.

I just put some decisions off and off and off.  And when I bite the proverbial bullet, I wonder why it took me so long.  Working in the more studio-like store this week has been incredible.  Really.

I’ll show you how we’ve rearranged the space after some final pieces come together, […]

Happy 4th!

By |July 4th, 2015|

Well, Happy 4th of July, friends!!

We’re still at the beach enjoying a little time off (Thank you, Jesus), but I wanted to wish you a happy holiday with your family and friends.

And here’s a little throwback to a fun 4th photo shoot we worked on last year…

You can see the rest of the kids’ treat […]

Lance’s Latest Photography

By |June 30th, 2015|

You all met my brother a while ago.

He’s lots of things, some wonderful, some frustrating, but one thing he most certainly is…an amazing photographer.  I was perusing on his Instagram feed last week, and realized he’d uploaded lots of new shots.

Here are a few of my favorites…

See what I mean??

Some of you have asked before, […]

Color Stories by Perfectly Imperfect

By |September 5th, 2014|

Now that I’m back in the shop every day, our schedule is tight, and I’m still adjusting to it.  I feel like I’m slowly getting into a groove, and finding time to fit blogging and the behind-the-scenes work in.

My work for PI consists of directing the whole shebang, of course, but truly focuses most on […]

South Africa, Part 4

By |May 27th, 2014|

Psst…first Read Part 1, Part 2, & Part 3 of our trip to South Africa….


I had packed the night before, slowly wrapping up each piece of my clothing, my mind wandering.

To say that Africa had moved me was an understatement, and I couldn’t completely put my finger […]

My Brother, the Crazy-Talented, Up and Coming Landscape Photographer

By |February 26th, 2014|

You know that movie, My Father, the Hero??

I loved that movie.  I mean, y’all.  Young love, sweet father/daughter storyline, beautiful beaches…what’s not to love?

Sometimes, because of my love for said movie, in my quest to describe someone it simply rolls off the tongue.

Family Photo Ideas

By |January 31st, 2014|

Morning, friends!

The last few days have been strange, but totally splendid.  We’ve been in the house with roads closed due to the icy storm Leon.  They don’t keep many snow plows or salt domes in south Alabama so once it froze solidly, we were in until today.  All is safe and […]

family photos

By |January 30th, 2012|

If you’ve ever had your family photos taken with little ones in tow, you know what a feat it is.

We know the same.

It’s why I’m going to show you way too many of ours.

It was hard work to get these, baby.

Because […]

the house is nate-ready

By |September 13th, 2011|

Well, I miss you, friends!!!

It’s been quite busy here in Atlanta, and I haven’t had any time to stop in to your blogs and write to you on the happenings here.  If you follow me on Twitter, you’ve gotten a glimpse into some of the busy-ness.

But know that I’m […]

Dining room reveal…oh-so-close!

By |August 21st, 2011|

A couple of months ago, we embarked on a dining room makeover.  After seeing our vision come to life a la Layla, we were all in.  We quickly realized it was more of an overhaul than a small makeover.  Anytime you choose to build 10 foot built ins, a massive farmhouse table, add […]

ediTORIal and lil sugar

By |August 17th, 2011|

It was an exciting day around here yesterday.

If you follow me on Facebook, you know I got some great news (which I’ll share as soon as I can).

I also was floored and honored that the kids’ playroom was featured on Tori Spelling’s ediTORIal site!!

Living room spruce up

Happy 4th of July!!

We are working away on the dining room, but last week I had some fun sprucing up our living room for summer.

I’ve got a whole bunch of pictures to share, but until tomorrow, it’s just the two.


I know. […]

Thanks to all the well wishes for our Disney vacation last week!  We finally made it home later last night and man, are we beat!

I couldn’t resist sharing some of our favorite moments of the trip with you guys.  And yes, Ava’s face remained just that way for the […]

beautiful hardware

By |June 28th, 2011|

Since I began blogging, I have found artists, designers, and online (etsy or otherwise) shop owners I’ve fallen in love with.

And a very rare sometimes, they’re all three.

I’ve been looking forward to this package for a while now.  You guys fell in love with her work when Kristi at […]

Ava’s party inspiration

By |June 24th, 2011|

While we’re living it up at Disney (a.k.a. battling the rain and tantrums, but having a ball–we think), and I miss you… I thought I’d say hello!

Thank you guys SO much for linking up to the All Things Furniture party this week!!!  I cannot wait to make my way through all […]

Blue-gray end table

“Live with intention.  Do what you love.”    -m.a. hadmacher

That’s what I’m doing…and I love getting to share it with you, because you guys were the reason I began painting and continued blogging, turning hobbies into business and passion.

And it’s a good thing I love this…because pieces […]

a vintage inspired wedding

By |May 4th, 2011|

Despite the destruction of the tornadoes last week, we headed to Huntsville for my cousin Jason’s wedding.

We all felt so very blessed to be celebrating such a joyful occasion in the midst of the turmoil in our state.

And because it was a blessing (and it was beautiful), […]

No matter how long the winter,


the spring is sure to follow.


Hoping you’re reveling in springtime today.


Flickr Features & An Announcement

By |March 13th, 2011|

It was so exciting to see the photos trickle in over the weekend to our new Flickr group.  I’m thrilled that they’ll always be there, and I’ll be able to gradually feature all of your projects!  It goes without saying these should be mainly furniture projects, but definitely projects that involve painting/painting treatments. (note: for […]
