Without unique home accents, all interiors would be indistinguishable from one another—leading to countless parents accidentally raising their neighbor's kid as their own. Design a memorable abode for you and yours with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of hand-painted furniture and home accents at The Painted Lady, which has two Chicagoland locations.
The Painted Lady's owner, Beth Brace, scours antique markets, estate sales, and private collections throughout the Midwest to locate and reincarnate one-of-a-kind items through artful restoration. She specializes in giving furniture and decorative accessories a new lease on life using various restorative procedures, such as fresh-paint makeovers, classical distressing techniques, and skillful placement of googly eyes. In addition to decorative vases ($5–$65) and twinkling chandeliers, The Painted Lady is stocked with vintage frames and original artwork by local artists. Lamps ($35–$235), candle holders ($12–$75) and candles ($19–$39) infuse drab dens with a luminous glow capable of lighting romantic meals or illuminating shadow-puppet reenactments of The Battle of Little Bighorn.
Beth also welcomes special orders, providing customers with the opportunity to procure a personalized memento. Once treasured keepsakes are uncovered, they can be customized with any painting or distressing service or simply wrapped up to be eaten later.
