Shooting the Summer Collection

By |June 3rd, 2016|

It’s been a productive (and exhausting) week in the store.  We’ve been getting in new product, painting furniture and new sample boards for our new tinted waxes, and I started shooting the Summer Collection. I’m a little late this time, but I usually don’t let my disorganization get in my way if I decide to […]

Shop Talk- Meet Julia

By |June 2nd, 2016|

Well, we’ve come full circle at PI.  Kaitlyn & Julie moved on this year to other careers..and there for a while, it was just Adam and I at the store.  We missed the girls, but we were making it work.  Sort of.

And out of nowhere, along came Julia.  I met with her, and hired her […]

By |May 31st, 2016|

Well, it’s here.

shop Black Chalk Paint Wax

Annie Sloan came out with some new tinted waxes, which I love.  I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about the black wax, and I’ve only played with some samples, but this piece…

Makes me feel like I can dig it.  It looks great over the brighter colors in […]

Shop Newness

By |May 19th, 2016|

It’s been a while since I’ve shared some of the newness in the shop.  It’s still one of my favorite things when a couple of boxes come in.  I’m looking forward to bringing our new lines home to photograph them and give you some fun decorating ideas.  Or, they can be mediocre ideas and you […]

Factory South Shop Displays

By |March 3rd, 2016|

It’s been a while since I shared any displays at our second location, Factory South.  I’m in and out of there once a week or so, and I still love the way it looks when I walk in.  That’s the fun thing about this brand for me.  It feels so much like perfectly imperfect, but […]

Spring Shop Displays

By |February 17th, 2016|

If you follow us on Periscope, you know we’ve got a new pantry section & organic bath line coming to the store.  We’ve been getting in lines a little along the way since our trip to market.

I took the time last week to snap a few quick photos for you; it’s been awhile since I […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Shop Talk | PI Re-Invented

By |May 27th, 2015|

Can you guys believe that May is almost over… yea me either. I guess its true what they say.

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

Sometimes We Work Too Hard

By |May 20th, 2015|

First off. Sometimes we work too hard.

Other times work just seems to get the best of us and we have to take a quick break.

This time… well we were just enjoying the sunlight. And I was merely resting my eyes for one quick second!

We love days where the sun is beaming in.

It’s also a good […]

Growing Slowly

By |April 13th, 2015|

I’ve had one of those months.

Things aren’t really lining up perfectly at work…sales are a little slower, some systems aren’t as efficient, and I’m most certainly more scattered & unorganized.  Some of my ideas aren’t panning out, and the ones that do seem to require a lot of my time–which is a little limited right now.

This doesn’t make […]
