Reinvented Vintage Turns One!!!

Wow!  I think this has been the fastest year in the history of (wo)man.  I can’t believe that just one year ago, I was negotiating the contract on our little store’s space, pulling up purple carpeting and painting over the pink walls.  Time flies when you’re having fun, right??  That or just working your “you-know-what” off.  I am SO proud of how far Reinvented Vintage has come….from our humble beginnings in my Mother-in-Law’s garage, to a rented space in the bathroom of the Shoppes on Woodlawn, to a small studio space, to our current retail store space in Breckenridge Village…..  Take a walk down memory lane with me, will ya??

So, this is what the store looked like when the real estate agent initially showed me the space.  Previously, the store was occupied by the iconic Pinky Punky.  Pinky Punky was a formal wear and prom dress store that was in business for over thirty years.  They had a lip shaped couch when you walked in the door.  It was the place to be and be seen in the 80s and 90s!  And don’t you LOVE that leopard print carpeting!  My husband and I ripped out all of the carpeting ourselves, took out lots of old wires, speakers, a projector and screen, and took doors off their hinges to open up the old dressing rooms.  We painted the concrete floors, walls and ceiling.  This is what the store looked like a few days after we opened our doors for the first time.

And this is what it looked like a few weeks later when Urban & Proud came to interview me:


And here’s what it looked like a few days ago:


The store is constantly changing.  We get new things in everyday so we’re constantly moving things around.  We changed our Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint display a couple of weeks ago and we’re working on a new art wall that will showcase our featured local artists.


The upstairs loft is where we hold our painting workshops and teach our customers the ins and outs of the two lines of specialty furniture paints that we retail.  The workshops are great fun, everyone always learns a lot, leaves with a finished piece of furniture and the knowledge and confidence to go home and complete the other projects on their list!

Thursday night we will celebrate Reinvented Vintage’s One Year Birthday!  I hope you all can join us!  We will have cupcakes from Tracy Cakes (SO YUMMY!!!), champagne, a paint bar where you can play with the Maison Blanche Vintage Furniture Paint and the Milk Paint, and a photo booth.  When you show us your photos posted with the #reinventedvintage you will receive a discount at checkout!  Can’t wait to see you on Thursday!  5-8pm!!

Hello! So here’s the update on the house. After the water was removed with a gigantic vacuum thingy, the professionals came in to do the drying out of the home. Unfortunately for us, that meant tearing it to shreds. 🙁

where my sink was

where my sink was



Floors were ripped out, cabinets and countertops were demo’d and sinks and toilets are now in odd places in the house.  The toilet in the master bath is now sitting inside the shower.  🙂

So, for two weeks we’ve been living in a hotel room with a tiny fridge.  You know the kind that has the little baby freezer at the top?  And the closets here are about two feet wide.  The hubs took it over with all of his suits and dress shirts so I got the “dresser” for all of my painting clothes.

No, I really don’t mean to sound ungrateful.  There has been a silver lining.


I mean not everyone has an indoor pool at their “house,” right?!

Next steps are to get our furniture and “contents” moved out of the house so we can get the contractors in there to install floors, drywall, baseboards, crown moulding, sinks, toilets, tile, etc. ….

Our friends and neighbors have been so amazingly helpful to us.  People have given us food, gift cards, helped us pack, donated boxes and packing supplies…..Thank you to everyone who has prayed for us, called, texted, emailed, etc.  We appreciate you!

Oh, and did I mention that the hotel has free happy hour each night??

New Year Goals…and the day it rained in my house.

Hello friends,
One of my goals for 2014 is to blog more regularly. I have so many before and after projects and tutorials that I would love to show you all but in 2013 it seemed as though running the store always took precedent over blogging. Now that the store has been open for nine months and its running smoothly, I am going to prioritize blogging! I am hoping to get one post up each week, hopefully on Mondays.


So…without further ado, my first post will be about the day that it rained inside my house. It was last Tuesday to be exact. I picked up my boys from school and drove home, as usual. I pushed the garage door opener button and as the door raised, i noticed this, coming from inside.



Hmmmmm…..that’s weird.  I pulled the car back out into the driveway and told my boys to stay inside the car.  As I walked into the garage, I could hear what sounded like a waterfall inside my house.  I walked in to find this…


Standing water about three inches deep all over the entire main floor of the house.


Here’s the culprit.  A pipe burst above the kitchen, and made a hole in the ceiling.  Water was spraying out of this hole when I walked in.

You can see the water dripping down our chalkboard wall.  This wall is full of water.

I tried not to panic, although I did freak out a little, but with the help of a neighbor was able to turn the main water off to our house.  There was water coming out of our electrical breaker box so we had to turn off the power to the house as well.  Neighbors came over and brought a shop vac and helped us get up as much as the water as we could and move our furniture to dry ground.  A water restoration service provider was able to come out within an hour and vacuumed up most of the standing water with his fancy vacuum.  I took the kids to my parent’s house for the night.

The next day, Service Masters came out to assess the damage and I’ll show you pics of what happened in the next post.  This journey is going to be crazy and frustrating, but through it I’m going to attempt to blog about the house, the upcoming renovations and God’s provision through the process.  photo

Signing off now from the comfort of our new home (hotel room)……….

Grand Opening Party!!

Last night was our Grand Opening Party!  The turnout was great and everyone really seemed to be enjoying themselves.  Champagne and cupcakes from Tracy Cakes were served and we had a paint bar set up in the loft.  It was a lot of fun!!




We “reinvented” the upstairs loft workshop space and I love the way it looks!  Everthing is clean and organized and all set up for our monthly workshops!  




Thank you to everyone who came out last night for the event!  The response to my new little shop has been incredible!  I feel so thankful to be able to do what I love for a living!
