The Empty Nest {A wonderful new shop}


Terry and I were so excited when we heard that our ‘blog’ friend Janet from The Empty Nest was opening a store on Main Street in Warrenton, VA. We couldn’t wait to see all her beautifully painted furniture and Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in action.

I was in the same area last week {working on my Mother’s Work/Craft Room} and so we made a shopping event out of visiting the store during her opening and finally got to meet Janet in person. {If you don’t know her blog, please visit her HERE.}

Terry & I with Janet at the opening of her new store, The Empty Nest

She is as uplifting and radiant as you would expect from reading The Empty Nest and her new store is filled with all sorts of beautifully redone furniture and other wonderful goodies.

She is a stockist for Annie Sloan and regularly gives workshops {I am planning another trip so I can make sure to attend the next workshop} and is a wealth of knowledge about furniture and paint.

Each piece of furniture is unique, but all are beautiful.

She also sells some fabulous finds from other small businesses like these delicious candles. I was so overwhelmed deciding among all the delicious smells, I somehow didn’t buy one, but will be loading up on my next visit.

Even her checkout table was gorgeous. I think I will steal her fabric treatment style for my Mom’s sewing table.

And, a wine rack to hold paper rolls–wrapping paper? Art paper? She has creative ideas everywhere you look.

Its exciting to see and hear about all the new creatively inspired businesses coming to Old Town Warrenton.  Make sure you stop by and visit Janet and the Empty Nest at 92 Main Street, Old Town Warrenton, Virginia.

{Warrenton is located approximately 40 minutes outside Washington DC, read more HERE and HERE}

Good luck Janet! We’ll definitely be stopping in again soon.
