Jam Session: Lake Street Dive Playlist

Lake Street Dive

Ben and I and a friend went to see Lake Street Dive at the Buckhead Theater on Saturday. I was too excited to sleep. If you’ve come into the store the last year, you’ve heard me playing Lake Street Dive. I could listen to their music endlessly, as everyone in my family knows all too well. All the great things about them: they’ve got great vintage style, the lyrics are quirky & clever, their lead singer is a woman (yas queen), the vocals are so unique, Rachael Price (lead) is a babe who also has incredible hair, and of course, the music.

They were even better in person. Rachael’s voice is so clear and loud.

I’m obsessed with their new song Side Pony. Also, can we talk about the bassist’s nail color? Come on!

Check out our “best of” playlist below. I could put every single song on there but I refrained because then it wouldn’t be a “best of.”

My friend aptly put that they belong in Scooby Doo.

Before & After: Furniture Edition

It’s time for another Before & After Furniture Edition. This time with a set of four vintage wooden chairs.

The Before:

Although we loved the bright blue fabric, the upholstery was a hack job. There were staples showing (read: GROSS) and it was all puffy in all the wrong places. They were very uncomfortable and the cushions needed replacing.

The Process:

We had all the fabric removed, the cushions replaced, and we used this polka dot fabric.

The After:

I love how the black and white fabric has a little bit of classic, a little bit of whimsy, a little bit of masculine and feminine, and neutrality. These chairs could fit into almost any space!

Now the chairs are comfortable & beautiful… The perfect combo.Save

Before & After Furniture Edition

We love unique furniture and giving pieces new life here at Personify Shop. Our desire is to fill your home and life with an eclectic mix of old and new. Here’s a look at the before and after of a current antique piece at the shop that exemplifies the Personify Shop ideal of personalizing your world.

BEFORE: We found this sad settee at one of our favorite places to find unique items. The intricate carved wood at the bottom was too interesting to pass up. We had never seen a piece like it. But the fabric was dismal and the cushion was drooping and saggy. We knew it needed some love and refurbishment.

AFTER: We had the upholstery redone in a gorgeous citron yellow velvet fabric. We took the badly done cushion off, added cushion to the the seat itself, and voila! This settee is perfect for dining, a bedroom, a hallway, or living room. The antique charm and intricate design of the carved wooden legs makes this piece truly unique. The color and fabric choice modernizes the piece a bit and makes it pop. The pillows in the picture are also available here.
