Megan from Painted and Distressed


My name is Megan and I have a 4 year old daughter. When I was shopping around to decorate her nursery, all of the things I liked in the stores, looked like something I could make myself...and I did just that! I decorated her nursery by refurbishing antique furniture I received from my grandma who had recently passed away. I also had a lot of decor items that were out of date and I repurposed them so I could incorporate them into her room. After I was done with her room, my passion for DIY continued to grow! I have a youtube channel to help people learn just as I did that you can decorate a beautiful home without having to drain your bank account.


1. In one sentence describe what it is you create/craft:

I love crafting materials I find from Dollar Tree or on clearance to create a beautiful one of a kind home decor pieces; I also love a good furniture flip too!


2. What is your favorite Surebonder product:

I absolutely love my detail tip mini glue gun. It dispenses the perfect amount of glue each time so my project doesn't have globs of glue all over it and I haven't burnt myself!!! I also love Surebonder's all temperature hot glue sticks because I can use them on virtually any material and there isn't a ton of strings, which drives me bonkers when working on a project. I use a ton of hot glue and have tried almost every brand out there, but the Surebonder glue sticks are hands down the best on the market.


3. What craft have you always wanted to try: 

I have always wanted to try woodworking. I would love to use more power tools on my channel too!


4. What inspires you:

My daughter inspires me every day. She may only be 4, but that kid has an eye for design.
