Local Treasure :: Stylish Patina

If you have not seen or even heard of Stylish Patina - run, don't walk to Falls Church to check out Kelly Millspaugh Thompson's gorgeous new store! Self described as "where modern meets vintage", Kelly has created a lush little world of unique and fabulous home decor. This is the place to go to find that perfect little dresser for your bedroom or entry way. Just the spot to pick up a hostess gift or a set of LOL hilarious thank-you cards you will want to send to yourself!
Kelly has made a name for herself using Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint to bring back to life old forgotten wooden antiques. She repaints them and gives them a distressed look. Beautiful. The store is an absolute inspiration - thank you Kelly! Check out hours/directions and all the other info you need here. I recently used the chalk paint on my school desk in my television room. Check it out to see how nicely it covers metal as well as wood.  We'll also have a blog post soon about the chalk paint used to jazz up an old buffet and hutch.
