The Grand Opening Details!!!!

Boy, have I missed y’all.

I’ve never quite found a level of busy like this.  We have literally worked around the clock, and now, finally, we are breathing again.

All the time, energy, and work is already paying off, and I could honestly not wait any longer to share pictures with you!  I’ll snap some from the outside tonight, and shoot some full-room shots, too.

Until then, I’ll snap a pic between customers, and blog in between some more….which is a good problem to have, I know.

It was really important to me to carry items I would immediately put into our home, both new and old.

It’s funny, people keep asking if I’m going to do any painted pieces in here, and I kind of love that my pieces are blending in with the new ones.  That’s how I’d want it to be in our home, right?

We honestly had no plans to have customers before the 10th,  and have been pleasantly surprised at the drop-in traffic this week.  Our first sale was on Monday, waayyy before the shop became presentable!

We did a little winter wonderland window decking, too, and I’ll tell you all about that soon!

We’ve got a major day of fun tomorrow for the Grand Opening:

We’re giving away all sorts of goodies like Perfectly Imperfect t-shirts, MMS Milk Paint, Chalk Paint, gift coupons, and lots of other fun stuff!!  If you’re in town or know someone in the Troy, Alabama, area, come on in and sign up!  A lot of you guys have asked…Our address is 52 East Court Square, Troy, AL. 36081.  Let me know what you think…can’t wait to share more with you and hope to give some of you a neck hug tomorrow!!!

    Everything looks just gorgeous! It looks like such a fun place to shop. If I lived a little closer to your neck of the woods, I’d be there in a heartbeat!

      I so enjoyed seeing everything and getting a little shopping done yesterday. The name of the shop may be Perfectly Imperfect but the shop is PERFECT. and how blessed am I? I live just a few miles away.
      Praying God’s richest blessings on you, your family and your new business.

  14. Meagan November 9, 2012 at 2:41 pm #

    Wow! I am so excited for you! I just adore your tree! It’s a nod to my cotton-farming Dad. What a cute idea!

    Gorgeous ! Wish I could visit down there .

  24. Kaaren@growingyourpassions November 9, 2012 at 5:24 pm #

    Thank you for including your address. I can’t tell you how often I read a wonderful blog with pictures or snippets about an upcoming show or Open House and they fail to mention where it will take place. They don’t even give you the town much less an address. It has turned out looking great and I know what work it takes to get a shop up and going. I wish you the very best on your venture. Take a deep breath and enjoy your official Opening Day. Kaaren

  25. Kayla C November 9, 2012 at 5:40 pm #

    Oh my gosh. Your shop makes me swoon. Love all the big and small details. Just googled it and you are a 17 hour drive from me. Made we want to cry. No chance you setting up something online is there ;)
    Congrats. All your hard work has really paid off

  26. Danielle November 9, 2012 at 5:48 pm #

    I can’t believe how much you have all done in such a short period of time! Good luck tomorrow and enjoy all that you have worked so hard to achieve.

  30. Lana Hardwick November 9, 2012 at 6:14 pm #

    My friend and I are driving down to see your shop, tomorrow….see you then…..

  31. Nancy@Artsy Chicks Rule November 9, 2012 at 6:28 pm #

    Everything looks so great! Really!
    I wish I lived closer so I could come and see it all in person!! I also googled just for the heck of it!! 13 hours, a little too far for a “day” trip. Know it will be fabulous. Enjoy!!

  32. liane November 9, 2012 at 6:53 pm #

    Everything looks great. Wish I could be there. Great Success to you.

    AMAZING! How cool to have so many pretty things all together. I so wish I could come see your shop in real life – instead I will *patiently* wait to see more pictures. Thank you so much for sharing this journey with all of us.

  35. Treva Worthington November 10, 2012 at 12:09 am #

    I’ll take one of everything….oh if money were no object! So amazing! I have become such a big fan of yours! Seeing you bring the shop together has really inspired me and given me my own dreams and goals to reach for! My garage is already full of furniture to paint. Congratulations and wishing you much success on this journey!

    There’s only one problem here, YOU’RE NOT IN ARIZONA!!! I’m adoring every bit of your shop! All the best with your Grand Opening!!!

    p.s. I put real cotton plants on my tree every year too. My husband is a cotton farmer. :)

  41. Beth Magness November 10, 2012 at 6:48 am #

    Congratulations Shaunna and Matt! Must include Matt! I can’t wait to come peak around and cheer you guys on during your Grand Opening. The photos look winderful. I have a feeling it’s going to feel more like “Perfectly Perfect” Isn’t that what Mary Poppins says? Or is it “Practically Perfect” – that’s it. In any case, I hope this day brings you many blessed memories and see you soon!

  42. Bliss November 10, 2012 at 8:10 am #

    Exciting times for you. Thanks for taking me along for the remodel.


  43. Deb Deaton November 10, 2012 at 3:29 pm #

    Congratulations Shauna and Matt!! You store looks amazing from your photos and hard work. I am praying that God will continue to bless you with the growth of your new business and continued success. Wish I lived close, I would be at your Grand Opening! God Bless you both.

  55. Sallie November 28, 2012 at 12:59 pm #

    I love the natural cotton garland on the tree. Is that something you sell in your store, or could you tell me where you found it? I live in NC and I think that it is beautiful on the tree!!

  56. Cindy Barganier December 7, 2012 at 8:04 pm #

    I am SO,SO,So pumped!. I just discovered you, love the look of your store and was prepared to find out it was 500 miles away. What a happy that you are less than an hour away. I will be visiting!
