Our focus is sharing information on how to transform your dated kitchen cabinets using Annie’s products.

So look for The Purple Painted Lady team. We should be easy to spot, we’ll all be wearing a purple shirt and purple Converse sneakers. (Just want to mention ….that these boats of a shoe in the photo are for Luke…..who is part of our team.)

Florence Chalk Paint®- take a look at this beauty!

We really enjoy seeing “before & after” photos from our customers and here is an amazing transformation done by Michelle Siefker using Florence Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan.  

Here is a BEFORE photo of Michelle’s bed.

Michelle used Annie Sloan’s Florence Chalk Paint®.

Florence, according to Annie Sloan, “was inspired by the colors of the copper green mineral and semi-precious stone, malachite, and from the same family of stones as azurite and turquoise. In the 17th and 18th century it was used as a color made with verdigris but as it is a very fugitive color turning black with time so we are not aware of how it was used on woodwork in many houses. It is a classical color found in classical Italian furniture.”

 

The Purple Painted Lady loves this color because it reminds her of the beautiful green-blue ocean in Honduras!

Michelle first used Florence Chalk Paint®…and then she applied Annie Sloan’s clear wax first…then the dark wax all over, rubbed that away and then clear wax as the final coat, buffed to a sheen.

 

Gilding by Annie Sloan

The Purple Painted Lady is excited to announce the suite of NEW GILDING by Annie Sloan!

Add a metallic touch to your painted furniture with Annie Sloan Gilding Wax.

Apply to ornate carvings and mouldings to enhance texture and detailing, or use with your favourite Annie Sloan Stencil to create gilded shapes, lines and designs.

Annie’s gilding can be applied with a lint-free cloth, a brush or your fingers!

Gilding is always applied last- I like to use the analogy…like roses on a wedding cake!  You do not go back and frost all over the cake once your decorative roses have been applied.  So, do not apply clear wax over your gilding, unless you are trying to “erase” or remove it.

Gilding comes in 15ml tubes.

The Colours are:

Warm Gold, Bright Gold, Bright Silver, Dark Silver and Copper

Little Gray House Update

#littlegrayhouse update!

Back in September of 2016, we purchased a property that had a little old house on it. The house was built around 1856.

Little Gray House The Purple Painted Lady

 

 It is a tiny little house- right around 1,000 sq ft.  It was in pretty poor condition and hadn’t had any work done since the 6th layer of linoleum went on the floor back in the 1950’s. 

Linoleum Little Gray House Old Flooring

The Purple Painted Lady® is getting ready to paint the upcycled wood cabinets in the kitchen.

We don’t plan on having any upper cabinets, instead we will have white tile with barn wood floating shelves and white counter tops.

This custom blue shown is made of 1 part Greek Blue to 1.5 parts to Aubusson Blue Chalk Paint®.

Then we used clear wax and black wax. I love this sample cabinet!
