ABOUT THE OWNER
Kelly Millspaugh Thompson is a Northern Virginia native. She established Stylish Patina in 2011 and has her flag ship shop in her home town of Falls Church City, Virginia right outside of Washington, D.C.
Kelly received her undergrad degree from The College of Charleston and her M.B.A. from the Smith School of Business. She had a successful career as a Vice President of Operations and Marketing for over 15 years prior to venturing out as an Entrepreneur.
After years of designing and painting vintage furnishings for herself she began selling her vintage finds and bespoke furniture on Etsy in 2010. She fell in love with Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan and recognized the unique offering Annie Sloan had created. She reach out and quickly became one of the first stockist of the paint line in the United States. After much success she opened her first retail location, Stylish Patina Barn in Frederick, MD and eventually opened her flag ship shop in Falls Church City in 2013.

Kelly’s flair for finding vintage furnishings and giving them new life on any budget is at the heart of her burgeoning success. Her concepts center on the idea that home should be a comfortable place and design should be livable. Her favorite DIY (Do It Yourself) tool to refresh vintage furniture is Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan. Stylish Patina has an extensive DIY section and knowledgable staff to help you with any project you might want to take on. If you don’t want to do the painting they offer custom painting or you can buy a piece they have already transformed!
