Market 2016 Recap & New Lines

By |January 21st, 2016|

Every January we head to market in Atlanta.  I’m not sure how everyone approaches it, but we buy the bulk of our products for the year in a 4 or 5 day period.  We tend to get freight discounts, etc. so we tend to buy as much as we can for the year…it can be […]

Market on Chapel Hill Displays

By |November 3rd, 2015|

I realize I’m a little late on this post since the Market was a few weeks ago.

Alright, maybe more than a little late.

Had a lot of life going on lately, and we’ve been busy busting out projects at both stores.  The Market is one of our favorite events of the year..we dig the day and […]

Antique Desk Chair, Vintage Camp Stool, & Other Stuff

By |October 26th, 2015|

One of my favorite parts of prepping for the Market on Chapel Hill is designing and working on the pieces we find scouring flea markets & antique malls.  I’d been keeping my eye out for an old desk chair, and the girls found one nearby.

I honestly love these chairs in their original state, but this […]

The Market on Chapel Hill: Antique Hall Cabinet

By |September 22nd, 2015|

Well, we’re in high gear for The Market on Chapel Hill, and have (yikes) a little less than two weeks to get everything loaded in the truck and on the way to Pike Road.

Most of the pieces we’ve found this year needed full overhauls, but this antique cabinet just needed a little hemp oil on […]

The Market on Chapel Hill Inspiration: Wood & White

By |September 14th, 2015|

The Market on Chapel Hill, formerly known as The Chapel Market is less than a month away, and we’re panicked prepping like crazy.

We are busy shopping for some small finds and we still need a few more furniture pieces.  The girls may kill me if I ask them to paint the base coat on one […]

August Happenings

By |September 8th, 2015|

August came and went in five minutes.  I gave myself a bit a break from blogging, and enjoyed the last few bits of summer I had with the kids.

This little lady turned 6 and within a few weeks, she and her brother were off to school this year…

Most of you know that we’ve been homeschooling […]

Planning a Creative Retreat

By |July 23rd, 2015|

Well we are back from our Creative Retreat. This one was a little different than the last.

Last year’s Creative Retreat, we spent a ton of time on customer quality service and infusing magic into our business, and lots of energy defining our styles individually and as a brand.  And of course we had lots of […]

Happy Tuesday!

Kaitlyn and I are back from market and gearing up for PI’s creative retreat this weekend!

Market is always so much fun.

Behind the Scenes at Factory South

By |June 23rd, 2015|

To say that it’s been busy since opening Factory South is an understatement.

We’re running back and forth between two stores, and I have no expectations that will end anytime soon.  It’s a lot to juggle, setting up the new business and running both of our current stores in Troy.  Then there’s the blog, and online store […]

Flash Back Friday | The First Post

By |June 19th, 2015|

Happy Friday friends!

So today I am taking y’all back to the very beginning. I was sitting in my pj’s on the couch after the longest Christmas day I can remember.  Up to my eyeballs in crumpled wrapping paper, dirty dishes, and new toys for the kids.

French Chair Makeover in MMS Milk Paint

By |June 4th, 2015|

I’ve not had as much time for painting as I’d like lately, getting Factory South open and shooting our pilot, but as we geared up for Troy Fest this year, I had a little time to get creative.

Not much better than a quick transformation with a little paint.

We found this french chair on one of […]

When Life Gets You Down | Kaitlyn’s Things

Behind the Scenes with Matt

By |May 27th, 2015|

Boys will be boys.

That’s all there is to it.

So when we first decided to “re-invent” the back of PI, I knew Matt would be more than happy to come in and tear some things down.

As far as him helping us build some stuff for the back… the jury is still out!

Although let’s get real, anyone […]

Shop Talk | PI Re-Invented

By |May 27th, 2015|

When you get older time just seems to pass by quicker than it did when I was younger.

I remember middle school thinking summer would never arrive..

Now I feel like I can barely get over my birthday before […]
