Rusted a Vintage Market

Perfect Imperfections

Hi I’m Jeanne, and that handsome man next to me in the picture is my husband, Tommy.  We have been DIYers in our house pretty much our whole married life.  And we love the thrill of the hunt for our vintage items.


Over the years I painted some of our furniture, as well as our kitchen cabinets.  Initially, this was done because we couldn’t afford to buy new furniture and cabinets.  Since then I’ve found I love the look and can save money at the same time.  I’ve also had a hand in painting pieces for my grown children as they start setting up house with old hand me downs or garage sale finds.

Tommy and I love spending our time hunting for items for the store. We find things in our travels all over the Southeast. Tommy’s niche is old cameras, typewriters, books, and telephones. Other than finding furniture with good bones, I love to find unusual pieces to use as décor for the home. I especially love white Ironstone.

The reason I picked the name Perfect Imperfections is really two fold.  I think the “imperfect” in older pieces we find is really perfect. The old weathered and worn gives character to each piece. Sometimes they need a little help to be appealing in today’s decor. I perk up each piece with some color and various techniques to give them that worn look with a little pizazz!  The second and more important reason is that the name makes me think of how God uses us with all of our imperfections. I’m thankful he doesn’t throw us to the curb.

Take a look at some of these <perfect imperfections>.
