Paint Your Own Shoes With Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan

We do some crazy things at The Purple Painted Lady and try to keep it fun!  This workshop qualified for both!

We hosted a “Paint Your Own Shoes Workshop” and we had everything from ballerina slipper shoes to cowboy boots brought in to be painted using Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan.

The secret to painting your shoes- is similar to painting fabric.  You want to thin your Chalk Paint® with some water.  Since shoes do not require much paint, we poured about a 1/8 of a cup in to a plastic glass and then added a tablespoon or two of water and mixed it well.  You want to thin the paint, BUT NOT to the paint it loses it covering ability.

In the image above, you can see the inside of the boots that I painted.  The boots are a faux leather and I bought them at Target.  in fact, in 2015 – it seemed cowboy boots were all the rage in western NY, and I purchased a few pairs of the same boots since the quality and price was right!  They did not come in a “red” and I always wanted a pair of red cowboy boots…so I made them myself.

You need to be patient when painting shoes or fabric / leather couches and furniture.  You thin your paint with water so it is not super thick – especially because we want it to be flexible for the change in shape a shoe or boot goes through when we physically walk.  

Is this a permanent – life long solution?  Yes…and I also have a bridge to sell you too!  No, lol…but it is an option that will last a good while though.

I chose to use Burgundy Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan.  In my photo above – you can see the boot on the right in the drying process and how the color darkens as it dries. 

Annie Sloan defines this color as a rich deep warm red the color of dark cherries. Most of Annie’s colors are 18th and 20th century inspired but this one comes from the 19th century when the discovery of Alizarin Crimson made this color possible for the first time to a large number of people. It is now one of the classic colors used in particular for neo-classical painted furniture.

The Purple Painted Lady has found Burgundy to be interesting, in that the color appears to almost be like a bright berry color when wet, but the shade changes to a Burgundy when it is dry.

I painted my boots with three coats of thinned Burgundy and then did two coats of Annie’s Clear Wax.  I applied the wax with a lint free rag and I used the same amount of pressure that you would if putting eye cream around your eyes….meaning a delicate touch!  I also was gentle to remove the excess clear wax, and my hand glided over the surface when I was done.

 

I recommended to everyone in the class, to give their newly painted shoes or boots a couple days to be alone so they can cure and to hold off wearing them for a few days.

So, what do you think?

Graphite Chalk Paint® with Black Wax

Graphite Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan with Black Wax

Isn’t this handsome piece a show stopper?!

Sometimes you have to be patient and let a piece of furniture speak to you, for example…..like this vintage top hat dresser above!

Initially, we started out using Lem Lem Chalk Paint® on this piece.  And – with a little of Annie’s White Wax and even maybe an Iron Orchid Transfer in white – it could have been a show stopper too!    

But…after getting the Lem Lem on it…   I did not feel right!  This “handsome” piece had a maculine feel to it with its hefty wood posts on each side and just the way the burled wood on the drawers attracted me! 

Burled wood is special!  It is that swirly-grained wood that is often used on modern-styled pieces or as an inlay on vintage chests and dressers.

And the more I looked at it- it spoke out saying, “Please use Graphite Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan with Black Wax on me!”

So, we took it another direction.

MATERIALS USED ON THIS PROJECT:

Graphite Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan

Annie Sloan’s Black Wax

Annie’s SMALL dome top Paint Brush (this is my favorite!)

Annie’s SMALL Wax Brush (this is also our favorite wax brush!)

Scott Shop Towels (they are lint free and are hearty to remove the wax)

Odorless Mineral Spirits

Graphite Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan is a soft black – which I like to compare to a dark slate color or a vintage slate chalk board in an old school room! It is made with purplish blues, browns, and is not completely black. When waxed with Annie’s Dark Wax- the color becomes even more richer and warm. This is a popular color, especially when I am detailing a piece with vintage typography. I receive a lot of emails about this color. First- I want to clearly state again – Graphite Chalk Paint® is NOT black.

 

For this top hat dresser- I knew that I wanted it darker in color, so it was repainted using Graphite Chalk Paint®.

 

…..once we finished painting it – we decided to use  Annie Sloan’s Black Wax.  This photo belows shows the very top hat finished with Annie’s Black Wax but the lower portion with raw Chalk Paint®…meaning that is not waxed yet.  

Typically, at the shop we suggest to customers, to always apply a coat of clear wax before applying either black wax or dark wax (brown color)….this is especially important over light Chalk Paint® colors.  But since this is Graphite Chalk Paint® – we skipped the clear wax and went straight to the black.  

Here are the steps we took to paint this piece:

  1. We dampened a rag or a Scott Shop Towels with Odorless Mineral Spirits.
  2. We wiped down the areas of the dresser we planned on plainting.
  3. Took a rag moistened with fresh water and wiped down the whole piece.
  4. Once it was dry- we shook our quart of Graphite Chalk Paint® and shaked it  well, then opened and stirred it with a paint stick – making sure to scrape the bottom of the can.
  5. Using Annie’s SMALL dome top Paint Brush – paint the dresser applying the paint in the same direction as the wood grain.  Be sure to “lay” your paint on the final stroke.  (watch this VIDEO HERE if you do not understand what I mean by that)
  6. Once the first coat is thoroughly dry- (like within an hour)   Paint your second coat of Graphite Chalk Paint®.  
  7. Later that day or the next, feel free to apply Annie Sloan’s Black Wax using Annie’s SMALL Wax Brush (this is also our favorite wax brush!)
  8. I take a plastic spoon and using the back of it- I scoop some wax out of the tin and place on to a paper plate.   I have never dipped my wax brush right into my tin of wax.  It does not matter if I am using clear, white, black or dark wax.  I have always taken a scoop out and placed it on a paper plate and pulled from that wax with my brush.  I guess because if something was on my brush or if I got some light paint transfer – which can happen- it never would get into my tim by doing this.
  9. Once you have the Black Wax on the tips of the  Annie’s SMALL Wax Brush start to spread it all over the surface.  This is like skin moisturizer- you want a thin veil over all of the surface and you want gentle pressure so – it gets absorbed into the  Graphite Chalk Paint®.   
  10. Once- you have it all over your area- take a few sheets of your Scott Shop Towels  ….fold it into quarters and begin to wipe off the excess.  Thus, why we do not want to slather the wax on like we are icing a cake- because it will just go to waste now when we remove it.  
  11. Once I have lifted most of it off- Iusually take a clean Scott Shop Towels and wipe again gently in one direction.  just like we “laid our paint” – I feel this “lays” the wax.  You should be able to FLIP YOUR HAND OVER- and using the top of it….glide it on the surface.
  12. Now either move on to another area- OR leave it alone for an house!  Let the chemistry in the products have some time to set up.  Although “curing” takes a good 8 days –  after an hour or so….you can immediately begin to gently use your piece! 
  13. YES!  It is that easy!

Another Tile Floor Transformation with Chalk Paint®

This is spectacular!   An Annie Sloan Stockist named Josh Mintoft who owns Martha Heritage in Sheffield –  transformed his old tile that was a terra cotta red to something current, fresh and very clean looking! 

Josh cleaned his floor well and followed up with an additional rinse of fresh water to ensure there was not soap residue left behind, or any dirt.  He then made sure the floor was totally dry before he began.  Especially, in the grout lines.

MATERIALS USED:

French Linen Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan

Annie Sloan’s Lacquer

First- he painted in the grout lines with white.

Once the white on the grout was dry- he began to use the French Linen Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan to cover the bulk of the tiles. 

He was not too concerned about if he accidentally covered some grout with the French Linen Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan because he knew once he added the stencil…there would be enough movement- no one would really notice!

Josh stated he used a brush, and managed to get away with one coat generally of the French Linen – but touched up in places.  Then he stenciled and applied the Lacquer.   

Here is some important information about using Lacquer since it does NOT behave like paint. It is critical you read and follow the instructions we provide!!!!

How To Clean Your Painted Cabinets

Hi!  If you have have refinished your cabinets using Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan and her wax ….. I bet they look awesome!  Congratulations!

I want to help you keep them looking great!

NIGHTMARE:    First- let’s address the worse situation.  Meaning, something VERY BAD happens- (queue the scary music in a horror film now)  ……like a black sharpie was taken to the front and there is a “permanent” mark….or Crayola Crayons were used, or the black from the rubber bumper around a vacuum left a scuff …or a scuff from a kids shoe…..or for that matter……anything that does not come off with a gentle cleaner/dish soap and warm water.    

  • Grab your tin of Annie’s clear wax (in fact- always leave it under the kitchen sink.) 
  • Take a soft towel and get a small amount.  Like less than a single green pea.  
  • Lightly rub that on the abused area until you see the stain lift off.  
  • You might need to re-wax the whole door to get a uniform look- but this should have done the trick.  The reason this works is –  there is a component in the wax that keeps it soft and spreadable.  This component will also soften the top micro layer of existing wax on your cabinet door (or dresser, or table, etc)   When it softens that layer- it also allows you to lift any serious dirt or stain.  
  • If your cabinets were painted a while ago- you do not realize this…but dirt and dust will land on them.  By cleaning only one spot….it may acknowledge that the rest of the door needs to be cleaned also.  So, a nice once over with the clear wax will do the trick.
  • NOTE- if you have applied a tinted wax all over your cabinets- such as Annie’s Dark, Black or White wax.  You may need to re-apply the tinted wax if you lifted it when applying the fresh clear wax.

ON GOING CLEANING of Cabinets painted with Chalk Paint® and have Wax as a top coat:

Cabinet Care & Cleaning

From regular dusting to cleaning splatters and spills, you can help maintain the beauty of your cabinets by following these recommendations.


CLEANING GUIDELINES (HOW TO CLEAN YOUR PAINTED AND WAXED CABINETS)

A soft cotton cloth dampened with warm water is usually sufficient to clean your cabinets. If more thorough cleaning is required, please use a fresh solution of mild hand dishwashing liquid mixed with warm water.

After cleaning, wipe all surfaces with a clean, damp cloth. Dry immediately using another soft, clean cloth.

Do not aggressively scrub in any one spot.


CLEANING PRODUCTS TO AVOID:

The following cleaning products are to be avoided as damage may occur (this would apply to brand new cabinets from a big box store too):

  • Harsh detergents, strong soaps, abrasive cleaning products such as tub and sink cleansers, scouring powder, scouring pads, steel wool or self polishing waxes.
  • Sponges or dish cloths. They may contain particles that could scratch your cabinets, or they may contain food and oil residue or remnants of harsh cleaning solutions.
  • Solvent-based or petroleum-based products such as mineral spirits, nail-polish removers or paint thinners.
  • Ammonia or cleaning products that include ammonia.
  • Bleach or cleaning products that include bleach.
  • Silicone-based cleaning, waxing, or polishing products.
  • Soaps that are a “de-greaser.”

SPLATTERS AND SPILLS

Clean spills and splatters immediately. Prolonged exposure to spills, including food, water or other liquids, or to oil and grease splatters, can cause permanent discoloration or damage to your cabinet’s finish.

REGULAR DUSTING

cabinet care tips

Use a clean, soft lint-free cotton cloth for regular dusting.

Packaged dusting sheets are not required or recommended. Do not use pre-moistened dusting sheets, and do not use aerosol products made for dusting.

POLISHING

Over time, polishing compounds may build up on the surface of your cabinets and cause a hazy, streaky or yellowed appearance. Never use Endust or Pledge on cabinets.  

DO YOU PAINT CABINETS FOR OTHER PEOPLE?

I recommend that you add or embed to your painting quote ….the cost of one new tin of clear wax by Annie Sloan.  Leave it with the customer under their kitchen sink.   Explain to them and leave a document on how to use it.  

Provide them with TWO copies of a documented “CARE TAG” regarding on the proper way to clean their cabinets and have them sign off on your job – acknowledging that you left it. 

If you do not have a care tag…MAKE ONE NOW!   Just copy and paste what is above and tweak it to fit your style!

Old White Chalk Paint® Wash Over Exterior Brick

Before and After photos are always the best to showcase what is possible with a can of paint!  But not just any paint… we are referring to Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan because it is both an interior paint and exterior paint!

Anne, who is part of team at The Purple Painted Lady® has a young family and she and her husband Zack are serious DIYer’s.  From renovating their basement, to gutting their kitchen and bathrooms…they do not shy away from any project!  

This is Anne…isn’t she beautiful?

One smaller project she is currently in the process of doing – is giving her front entrance a face lift.  

Anne wanted to tone down the red of the brick.  She chose Chalk Paint® in the color Old White.

 Old White is the quintessential color to have in your painting pantry or toolbox! It is the perfect color, in that it plays perfectly with every other color! Old White out sells every other color in Annie’s suite.   NOTE though  – that  Old White is a very soft cream….. in my opinion. I think it looks literally like cream.  Something also to note….it does have the slightest hint of yellow.

 

If debating between this color and Pure White or Old Ochre Chalk Paint®, visit this link here => http://www.thepurplepaintedlady.com/2014/04/difference-between-annie-sloans-white-chalk-paint-colors/

 

Anne started with adding about 20% of water to a small portion of the Old White, but it wasn’t laying the way she wanted.  So, being that Chalk Paint® is an artisan paint- she started to dip her brush straight into the paint can, brushed it directly on the brick- and then dipped her brush into a cup of water and used the damp brush to spread the paint.  

Some things to consider when doing this project:

  1. If painting over concrete – place a drop cloth down.  If you drip paint on the sidewalk- it will leave a mess that you will not be able to wash away. (even with a powerwasher)
  2. I would suggest doing this project on a day that the temperature is reasonable.  Meaning in the 60’s, 70’s or low 80’s.  
  3. Check the weather forecast to make sure no major rainstorms are expected in the next 24 hours.  After that- you can have a Monsoon and not worry one bit about that paint!
  4. Start out with the paint thinned more versus less with water.  Remember – you can always apply another coat of the “wash” to make the white pigment heavier.
  5. Experiment with painting some random bricks in more of a solid to give dimension.  Or consider painting some random bricks using Paris Grey Chalk Paint®.  You could even use the  Paris Grey to cut in the mortar joints …if you have the patience.

Here is the “almost” finished outcome since Anne still has the top left corner.  Anne has not decorated her front stoop yet, but she always is working on different seasonal decorations to make her house a beautiful and inviting home!  Once she does- we will add a final photo.

DO I NEED TO SEAL IT?:

Chalk Paint®️ by Annie Sloan is also an exterior paint. Absolutely no topcoat is needed over the brick. Bricks are extremely porous and they pull that color in. As you know, chalk paint®️ sticks, grips and adheres to virtually any surface. Once it is dried and cured …..it is almost impossible to remove it. We just recommend checking the forecast before beginning a project like this and making sure that it’s not going to rain for 24 hours.
