My words cannot barely express the way I feel about my recent visit to “The Painted Lady“ in Chicago, IL. I went a short road trip with my parents and Kyle to downtown Chicago. I went expecting the usual city life experience. We went to the museum of Science and Industry and did a little shopping and cite seeing! It was definitely a windy day in the “Windy City”, but a great trip overall.
To make a long story short on this trip I came across this shop and my jaw nearly dropped (I’m serious my heart skipped a beat). Instantly, I thought… “This is it, this is my dream… my dream shop.” I fell in LOVE (Love I tell ya!) with this shop, the refurnished furniture, and vintage appeal.
The Painted Lady, Bucktown’s favorite chic place to shop, is an ever-changing collection of hand-painted antique furniture. From French provincial dining tables and apothecary jars to vintage chandeliers and antique armoires. Collections of bedding, accessories, linens and MUCH more are within these doors of this antique shop!
The Painted Lady’s vintage chandelier. This shop had a large selection of lighting, chandeliers and antique table lamps. From wall to wall these lights gave the room a warm comfortable atmosphere. (*Notice the windings staircase, this place was beautiful).
Each unique piece is hand-painted or left in its original state; no two pieces are the same. Below are a few examples furniture, accessories and other home decor items The Painted Lady offers.
Isn’t this shop just beautiful! If I could I’d visit shops like this every weekend, but lets be realistic here! But I’d like to know if you have any shops in your area like this. Let me know (shoot me an e-mail)… this inspires me beyond words! Or if you know of a place that would like me to post about them (for publicity)… shoot them my link. Hope you enjoyed this post as much as I did!
