he built me a wall

You know how some girls like getting flowers?

I feel that way about planks.

why not & the wall | perfectly imperfect

My guy just built me a wall.

We needed a “slow down & take a look” moment when you walked in our shop doors.  Our space is so open, so this wall gives us a chance to make a statement and create interesting displays that encourage our customers to ponder and wander.

And I kind of like it, too.

I chose to paint the wall in one coat of a mix of 2 parts Louis Blue to 1 part Old White.  (more on mixing paint colors, soon)  The soft blue turned out to be beautifully neutral, but striking…i love it!

And speaking of love….kitchen towels sewed in a little town outside of Paris found their way to my shop.

Planks and french linens in one day.

    I love a good wall. It’s the best present ever. Those are some pretty awesome towels too.

    Cool wall.
    I need all of the walls in my house done, please. ;)

    You have one great husband! I keep telling mine about him and he’s been picking up on the hints pretty quickly.
    Love the wall and the color – I’ve been falling in love with Louis Blue lately. As usual, I just wish I lived closer, I’d love to see the shop :-)

    That is beautiful! Such a good idea for my entryway, which opens directly into the living room with no seperation. Eureka!

    I wanted to tell you, late Sunday night you had a Peeping Tom at the shop. We were on our way back from the beach, and even though it was 10:30 p.m. I just had to come by and take a peek in the window. Plus, I wanted to find the shop for future reference. I had never been in that part of Troy and I fell in love! I can’t wait to make it back down there.

    I’d rather have planked walls than flowers anyday of the week too!

    We just did some planked walls in our home and now I am trying to think how to make a planked ‘barn wood’ privacy screen for our outdoor living areas…

    Hi Shauna, when i saw this post i thought of the local CHALK PAINT store. Here is her “slow down & take a look” moment at the front of her store. You are the one that got me interested in chalk paint but i live in CA. I am from BAMA, and stopped by in January to check out your store. My neice goes to TROY. Your store is great. Blessings to you.
