And the Winners of the Barn Sale & Junk Jubilee Raffle are……

Thank you to everyone who came out for The Purple Painted Lady Barn Sale & Junk Jubilee on Saturday, September 21st, 2013!

Sadly, I could not have chosen a wetter day to have hosted the event. But yet many of you braved the weather!

We are very happy to report that the Macedon Palmyra Rotary raised $1400 while managing the parking lot. All of this money gets turned around and reinvested right back in to the community. They had 11 adults volunteer their whole Saturday, to run around the rain and get muddy, and ensure that the parking lot stayed organized so you could safely come and go.

We are also very excited that The Cracker Box Palace Large Animal Rescue raised almost $1200 managing the front entrance. All of that money will benefit the animals there.

Lastly, a huge thank you to all the amazing vendors who were so professional and had incredible hand made items for you!

Chalk Paint® BASICS Workshop -Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013 starting at 10AM

This Workshop is happening on Tuesday, October 22, 2013 STARTING @10am!

Again, starting at 10am!

Register HERE

In this casual hands-on introductory workshop you will not only have FUN! But you will learn the “basics” of using Chalk Paint® Decorative Paints and Waxes by Annie Sloan. This paint is not one dimensional and there is so much functionality in it- let us show you how to take advantage of that and create pieces that will be drop dead gorgeous!

All supplies will be provided. First you pick out a sample pot of Chalk Paint® of your favorite color that you will use when learning how to wet distress. But from the very beginning, you will learn about making a glaze/stain using Annie’s soft, dark wax. Then you will be painting a one and two-color technique- showing you how to add a little dry brushing for effect and creating a wash. A very important finishing step in regards to distressing – sharing our tips & tricks and making sure you can create a professional effect. You will create a wash and learn the fundamentals of how to apply it properly. Lastly- we will focus in on using the wax! Hands on training on how to age and tone your finishes with clear and dark waxes and the proper application process. (applying the wax is often the biggest issue Chalk Paint® users have- what is learned in this workshop will eliminate that from happening to you!) And hands on experimenting with “polishing” the Chalk Paint® using sand paper.

You will leave the workshop with your own sample boards, a sample pot of Chalk Paint® in the color of your choice, and a funky fleur-de-lis …and most importantly – you will leave with the confidence and skills to tackle your own projects at home.

CLASS SIZE: We like to be able to help you one on one- so we have a class maximum of 6 people- with a minimum of 3- exceptions may be made based on my schedule- however, this would not set a precedent.

DURATION: This workshop runs around 3 hours- but has gone longer based on the amount of questions asked- which is very positive. Please try to get here 15 minutes prior to class starting. * This is a casual painting party so bring a light snack or even your dinner and your favorite beverage to enjoy.

NEW LOCATION!!!: The Purple Painted Lady, 77 West Main Street, Macedon NY 14502

Halloween Mix & Mingle Chalk Paint® Painting Party- Tuesday, October 29th, 2013 starting at 7PM

Mix & Mingle Painting Party- Tuesday, October 29th, 2013 starting at 7PM

In this fun, casual workshop you will create your own hand painted color chart to take home and while doing so, I will discuss the colors, share which ones look stunning paired up and share information about the use of Chalk Paint® and how to get the most of it!

This is a great workshop also if you have been thinking about a custom color. Let’s tackle it together – using the color wheel as a guide and our Paint Mixer Tool.

Any and all questions are encouraged! When I describe this gathering as a “Mix & Mingle” – it is because it is a very social setting. Bring you girlfriends- I will provide the soda, sparkling water and a little wine too. You bring an appetizer to share and do not forget to bring a recipe card, in case others would like to know how you made it. (And do not worry if you cannot bring an appetizer) Salvatore’s Pizzeria is 2 doors down and a small or medium pizza cut into finger food size squares works out great too.

Starting time is 7pm sharp and we will will probably end around 9pm.

COST is $30 and an appetizer to share! I need at least 4 people for this workshop- so invite your mom or girlfriends to come too!
