We are three weeks into our new space and starting to feel settled and SO HAPPY. I wanted to post some pictures for those of you who are out of town or haven’t had a chance to come in.

Our spring clothes … they’re just too good. We get new things in weekly, and sometimes daily. Please let me know if there’s something you see here that you don’t see on our online shop – we ship all over.

I also wanted to give you guys an update on our Lakemont shop. If you’re subscribed to our newsletter you already know this (if you’re not – subscribe here) . BUT after many conversations, thoughts, and prayers we have made the decision to focus our energies to our new Duluth location and not reopen Personify in Lakemont. This was a very difficult decision for us as we’ve invested SO MUCH the past three years in this lovely little town and have met many many wonderful people. It was the best decision for our family and we are excited about the future of Personify.

If you’re a Lakemont customer please please please do not be a stranger. We miss you guys already and want to hear from you! Let me know how we can keep you stocked on all your fave Personify goodies.

Happy days,
Maddie

Before and After: Furniture Edition

Yay! It’s time for another before and after furniture post.

1. The Find:

We found this dresser and thought it was very unique and had great detail, like the curved front and the flower drawer pulls, but the wood was in bad shape on the top, on the legs, and on the bottom.  So, we decided it needed a paint job.

2. Picking out a paint color:

We’ve been on a green kick lately so we knew it was going to be green. I pulled a couple of images that I loved with some green.

We were looking for a bright green that was way over on the blue side, rather than the yellow side. I love the pops of green in these spaces, which was the goal for the dresser.

 

Here’s the one we landed on:

Kilkenny Green from the HGTV Sherwin Williams paint collection. Kilkenny is a city in Ireland. The paint guy asked me twice if I was Irish. I said no, I just like green.

3. The painting:

We sanded the piece with a belt sander and then primed it. We let it dry then rolled on the paint with a foam roller (supposed to be the smoothest) and brushed on the front. We let that dry for about 3 hours and then painted one more coat. And VOILA; I give you the finished piece:

It turned out even better than we expected and I LOVE the green color.

Here are the flower pull details that we fell in love with:
