Perfectly Imperfect #PIinspired Weekly Newsletter Feature


A big thank you to the Perfectly Imperfect Team for featuring me in their weekly newsletter!

In case you missed it, I've included it below!


Featured #PIinspired Reader, Emily Hoff


I am from Jackson, Mississippi, originally, but have lived in Washington, DC since 2008.  I met Kern, a fellow Mississippian, while in DC and he and I got married this past November. I work for Congress, which means lots of long days and lots of time spent sitting at a desk.  In 2011 I was in need of a new hobby and ready to get my hands dirty!  I started reading Perfectly Imperfect and through Shaunna's helpful posts and video tutorials I mustered up enough confidence to paint my first piece of furniture with Chalk Paint--and then I was hooked!  Since then, painting has become my creative outlet and is the perfect weekend remedy to long hours in the office during the week. 


My favorite Annie Sloan color is French Linen, I just can't get enough. I would love to try Aubusson blue, it's so much darker than what I am used to painting with and that scares me! (in a good way)  If I'm going really out there, I think Antibes green is also super fun and bold and I think it would look fabulous on an old crackly piece with dark wax. 


I share all of my furniture ventures, my favorite recipes, travel adventures and bit of my life in DC on my blog: www.askforroses.com.
