I adore antiques! Awhile back I was reading a blog and fell in love with this antique store… um I mean barn. I barn that has been transformed into a antique store and outside a pink silo with polka dots. YES… this is right up my alley. To my amazement it was located in Virginia! I hae ntioned going there at least a million time and hubby brought be there. I could have spent a couple thousand dollars easily!

The main reason for my visit, Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I have been wanting to buy some for at least a year now and well there are no dealers super close. I am sure I could have order it online but how fun is that? I like to shop, SEE stuff and fill my mind with all the treasures I’ve seen. I got my paint and already started a project. I small project but at least I am doing something. Start small and move on the bigger projects. The reason for the paint… two bookshelves and an television armoire. I have know how I would paint them for a few years but it seems like with move all the time. I will start working on them soon. I need to take all the books out of them and make myself a place to paint in the garage.
