Exciting News!


It all started in 2011.  I was feeling the need to exercise my creative muscles and get my hands dirty when I came upon a blog called Perfectly Imperfect.  The blog's author, Shaunna, was a southern girl from Alabama and I immediately identified with her writing style and thought process.  She also had some seriously stellar furniture projects on her blog.  She had even written an e-book! She has since been on television, featured in magazines, authored another book that is coming out soon and opened a brick and mortar store in Troy, Alabama (they have an online shop too!).

I immediately became a faithful reader and it was through Shaunna's excellent tutorials that I mustered up the courage to chalk paint my very first piece of furniture.  Once I had experienced the feeling of a paint brush in my hand and seen the transformation that was possible with an average piece of furniture, I was hooked.  There was no going back.  I painted just about every piece of furniture that I owned, and then some!

So...what's the big news?

Shaunna and her team contacted me this week and asked if I would like to be featured in their weekly newsletter!  I had tagged a few of my pieces on instagram with the hashtag #PIinspired, because, of course, all my painting was inspired by Shaunna.  She was kind enough to take notice and select me to be in the newsletter!

It's basically like the President of the United States of Chalk Paint just called to tell me she liked my work.  That's my political equivalent of this monumental experience for me, y'all.  

So...how can you get the newsletter?  That's easy!  Here's some info straight from Shaunna's blog on how to sign up:


Visit the homepage of her amazing blog here, scroll down to the bottom right, enter your email address and a confirmation email will be sent to your inbox.  Be sure to confirm that you want the newsletter!

The just sit back and wait to see yours truly in your inbox on Saturday!
