Can you Paint Metal with Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan?

Can you paint metal with Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan?

Oh, YES you can!

There was an article in Better Homes and Gardens in March 2015. It was the last page of the magazine. It featured a blogger,Ciburbanity (Charlotte Smith) I kept it because I was impressed with her project! She painted a metal office cabinet. She noted in the article “I wasn’t sure the {Annie Sloan} Chalk Paint® would adhere to metal as well as it does to wood, but there is not a nick to be found.”

Annie Sloan’s Sanding Pads

We are super excited about Annie Sloan’s new sanding pads  that come in various grits.!  They are awesome for sanding or doing a wet distress!  Click HERE to purchase!

Sanding Pads at The Purple Painted Lady

Sanding Pads at The Purple Painted Lady

They are reusable – which means once you have saturated the sponge with paint particles from sanding, just run it under warm water with a little dish soap and clean them out to use again and again!

They are a great size also in that they are not too big and not too small.

Sanding Pads Annie Sloan The Purple Painted Lady 5 inches

The blue sanding pad is a coarse grit, red is medium and the green is fine grit. Always start with the coarse or medium grit, working your way to the fine grit.  If wanting to use them as a wet distress, just moisten the sponge side and squeeze out any excess water.

If interested in purchasing a 3 pack which retail for $10 from The Purple Painted Lady – just use this link here =>   https://thepurplepaintedlady.3dcartstores.com/Sanding-Pads–Annie-Sloan-PKG-of-3Reusable-fine-medium-course-grit_p_435.html

Provence Chalk Paint® on Front Doors by Helen Going!

We love the transformation that Helen Going did to the interior of her front doors of her home!

The Purple Painted Lady Helen Going Finished Doors Provence

Helen felt her front doors lacked character.  Her words were, “Our front door was boring, but had possibilities. It was white, and just blah.”  What do you think?:

Helen says that they now LOVE their front doors!

The Purple Painted Lady suggests wiping the doors down with Mineral Spirits, especially around the door knob.  Be careful not to drip this on your pretty floor!  Then do a clear water rinse.  Once all is dry- then begin painting.  As for using the clear and dark wax- The Purple Painted Lady included detailed instructions in purchases and we have that same information here on line for you!
