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 […]

Introducing Parsons West Collection & A Giveaway

By |July 28th, 2015|

****This Giveaway is now closed.****

One of the most rewarding parts of blogging is meeting new people.  People who do the same things you do.  Love the same things you love.  Work the same way you work.

Marian, a.k.a. Miss Mustard Seed, and I were fast friends after meeting, and we’ve since discovered that we’re basically the […]

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 […]

Hey, friends!

I’m still weeding through Chapel Market photos to show you of our booth while we’ve been shooting this last week.  I’ll share those with you soon, but we painted so many random pieces that I haven’t even shown you yet.

Last year our bestseller was our preserved cotton stems…by far.  So this year, we took […]

Pool House Makeover

By |August 5th, 2014|

Today is filled with organizing and preparing the playroom for school.  I’ll be filing and sorting and tossing old worksheets and getting puzzle pieces reunited. It’ll be the best and worst kind of day.  Worst in that I’m sure I’ll step on a million lego pieces and become overwhelmed at approximately 10 a.m. before getting […]

More Furniture Waxing Tips

Happy Monday to you guys!

Matt and I spent our weekend purging the garage–and let me tell you something: it was hoarder central in there!  We barely made it out of there.

Well, a little dramatic, but it. was. bad.

Happy Monday to you guys.

We are all resting and trying to recover from last week’s apocalypse flu, and thank the Lord for Tamiflu, I’m feeling better.  A HUGE thanks to my sweet mom and dad (and Lance and Sara), who had all just barely recovered from their own sicknesses, for sweeping […]

antibes green & aubusson blue davis cabinet

By |December 5th, 2012|

It’s a wonderful life.

We’re busy, and yet, I find that we are fighting for simplicity.

We are choosing to say no to some activities this year, and honestly, we’ve gotten too sick for some.  As bittersweet as it is to miss some of these things, we have had time to […]

cottage chest makeover

By |November 29th, 2012|

Well, it seems like forever since I’ve shown you a furniture makeover around these parts.  I’ve painted plenty, but rarely gotten around staging and shooting.

So I’ve decided to be a little less worried about such things, and snap a picture literally as the pieces are on their way out the door.

And […]

how to paint furniture

By |March 28th, 2012|

When I announced I was writing an ebook, one thing was clear to me–people needed one resource they could digitally pull off the shelf to get great inspiration & how to’s on painting furniture.

A few months later, all of our hard work was paying off (I’m also referencing my […]

furniture & diy eye candy | 508 restoration and design

By |February 28th, 2012|

I love those days where the click, click, click of my keys lands me somewhere spectacular.

Don’t you??

When I landed on 508 Restoration and Design, I knew I found something special.

When I saw this yellow chest of drawers, I thought I might faint.  Until I saw the knobs […]
