I'm Christine owner of the Painted Barn Market in Lafayette, New Jersey and a lover of vintage finds! My perfect Sunday is spent strolling through a flea market with my husband Ernie. I enjoy the thrill of looking for that one-of-a-kind treasure. I am blessed with an amazing and patient husband who works full time, but is always ready to help fix, design, and build furniture for our shop. We have four beautiful children and live on an 8 acre hobby farm in Sussex County, New Jersey. We raise chickens, ducks, cows, pigs and have a crazy chocolate Lab named Remi. My head is always full of ideas and I am the Queen of lists. I have refinished and painted furniture since my teens. My favorite color is “Sephronia Blue” (named after my Dad’s Mom who loved and painted absolutely everything turquoise). I am addicted to stale Twizzlers and anything chocolate. I can listen to Country Music all day long. The “Painted Barn Market” was created from a love of painting furniture and looking for a creative outlet. I discovered chalk and milk paints, fell in love with them, and the rest is history.
