Chalk Paint® Sample Board Colors- all in a row

Chalk Paint® Colors- all in a row

I hope this page will be helpful – seeing all Chalk Paint® sample boards in one spot. Click on the name of the color to launch the shopping cart page where we have a written description of the color too.  All Sample boards below are painted with TWO coats of paint over raw wood.  Then, a coat of clear wax was applied over the WHOLE board and then dark wax on half, or in the second image – it shows the white wax and black wax.  Do you need to use the dark wax, or the white wax or the black wax?  Of course not!  That is like saying you MUST have ketchup with your fries or sugar in your tea.    But, in most cases- you REALLY want to have a clear wax base BEFORE applying the dark wax or the black wax.  Read this POST HERE ABOUT DARK WAX WHEN YOU HAVE TIME:

Chalk Paint® for outside projects!

Yes! You can use Chalk Paint® for outside projects!

As in shutters, doors, porch floors, staining concrete, painting barns, outdoor furniture, swingsets, birdhouse, concrete benches, mailbox posts, (and I can go on and on…)

One of our amazing customer’s who owns a local consignment shop near us called Lu’s Back Door loves the color Napoleonic Blue.

Napoleonic Blue OPEN QUART

If interested in buying Napoleonic Blue Chalk Paint® on-line- visit HERE. (We ship same day and offer the lowest flat rate shipping fees)

Napoleonic Blue is a deep true blue that is the color of fresh picked blueberries. And is a great color for your painting pantry since it is – by default – a primary color!

So, Teresa used Napoleonic Blue to paint her front door and house shutters a year ago. What do you think?

PAINTING DECKS:

The Purple Painted Lady is also so impressed with this pool/deck transformation done using Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan.

The Purple Painted Lady Deck Pool Transformation Chalk Paint Annie Sloan Freeman

 

the painted penny completed this using 5 quarts of Graphite and 1 quart French Linen for the deck around pool and upper deck. Great coverage and great results. Next, she is moving onto the fencing, planter dividers, bar and pool.

When painting decks- please make sure to power wash off any loose paint or old stain prior to your project. Thinning the paint with water is also suggested. If painting an outside area like this- do it when there is no rain in the forecast for at least 24 hours too.

OUTSIDE FLOWER POTS:

At The Purple Painted Lady – the flower pots in front of our Macedon store were just ……pea green. Not a bright or eye catching green…plain ole’ …pea green. So…a little Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan to the rescue!

YES! You can use it on plastic without a primer or a top coat outside and it will last!!!!! A little Pure White, Florence, Provence and Burgundy (mixed with Pure White to achieve that Berry color)

So see…..Yes- Chalk Paint® can withstand the crazy weather elements in northern NY!

How did we get our business name?

I had the cutest thing happen at the store today.

A woman came in to The Purple Painted Lady™ with her daughter – who was probably around 6 or 7 years old. As I was cashing them out- the little girl looks at her mom and with a slight disappointed face, whispers, “she’s not purple.”

It was the cutest thing!

So, I thought I would let the cat out of the bag to all of you.

I am not painted purple!

How I did get my business name was actually kind of funny. We created it way back in 2009 when I was only painting murals and worked out of my home.

My husband Steve, daughter Danni and I- all live in a big OLD country Victorian farmhouse that was built in 1885. The house is white with various hues of purple, and is otherwise known as a “Painted Lady.”

One late night around 11:00pm, Steve and I were throwing business names around. I have always thought that “The Painted Lady” was perfect! But when we googled the name, there was already a website with it taken. sigh! I was so disappointed.

So, we started to play around with iterations of other “p” words. Steve suggested adding “Purple” to the name.

I sat there and kept saying, “The Purple Painted Lady™.”

I didn’t love it- but it sure was unique and described our home. So, I agreed, secured our website domain name- and voila~ The Purple Painted Lady™ was born!

Here are a few of the 350 murals I painted in western NY.

Here we are – almost 7 years later and we have three shops (opening our 4th in July 2015 in South Wedge (Rochester) area) with so many awesome customers!

Then in May 2015- we received our serial no. 86/641,416 with the US Trademark Office confirming that we own the names “The Purple Painted Lady” and “Purple Painted Lady.”  I have learned so much about people, business and life during this journey.

Thank you for coming along it with me!

Dining Room Transformation

Do you have an old dining room suite that you don’t like? Check out below what our customer Julee Sarno did with her Pure White Chalk Paint​® by Annie Sloan and a set she inherited from the previous home owners!

The Purple Painted Lady really LOVES this dining room transformation that took Julee’s space from a little dated – to totally fresh and current! Julee is a one of our wonderful customer’s who wrote us to share the details of her project.

I couldn’t have done it without your tutorials and the the info pages you sent with the product.

My husband kept making fun of me for watching the videos on YouTube but I liked to see the process and research before attempting it myself.

The whole cabinet was painted with one coat of pure white, with the exception of the top doors of the cabinet which had two coats and the inside of the cabinet.

Then I distressed the edges of each panel randomly with a soft sanding block. Finally I used clear wax (after at least 15 Pinterest tutorial videos of how to wax) all over, giving each flat surface two coats.

I used the fabric that I had covered my chairs in as the middle panel for a pop of color and to tie my dining room together.

I also soaked the hardware in salt and white vinegar to bring out some shine (this set was left to us by the previous homeowners who couldn’t take it with them) and it actually brightened up quite a bit.

My only words of wisdom are – that less is more!

When I went too heavy with the wax I could immediately tell. You want a nice, even coverage that doesn’t feel sticky and, once you wipe the excess, reminds you of smooth wood or glass. It’s exactly the feeling of waxing a car..keep rubbing until it doesn’t have any resistance.

And don’t be intimidated! I was nervous setting out with my first piece being a huge cabinet, but it was totally worth the effort. Thank you so much for all your guidance and help! I couldn’t have done it without finding the Purple Painted Lady and now I want to paint everything 🙂
