Painting Your Stone or Tile Backsplash using Chalk Paint

Danielle Dreyer of Rochester, NY Transformed her kitchen backsplash that she was really…really not on love with using Chalk Paint ® Decorative Paint by Annie Sloan in Pure. But now…..she loves her kitchen now!

Danielle has been painting with Annie Sloan Paint for a few years. You might recall the Amsterdam green bathroom vanity she completed a month ago.

As a young mom and an entrepreneur (doodle & jack ) ….a clothing line for littles, she loves the colors in the Annie Sloan suite and the ease of use with minimal prep since she does not have much free time.

Here are some BEFORE and AFTER photos of her kitchen backsplash that she painted with Annie Sloan. First…the AFTER photo because it looks so good!

And here is her kitchen BEFORE.

COVID-19 ……yes, we are here to help supply your paint therapy.

Depending on where you are located on this planet- unless you are hiding under a rock, you have become well versed on COVID-19 . In the midst of the reactions from panic, fear to utter chaos from the shutdowns, cancellations and possible quarantines….planning ahead is always helpful. In my area of western NY, literally, there is no toilet paper available to purchase…… anywhere! None at WalMart, Target, Wegmans, Tops, Lowes, Home Depot, etc….. What is up with buying out cases and cases of toilet paper? It is like people think it is made in China and importing it will stop. I am curious, is this happening in your area too? I find it crazy that it seems like toilet paper is what everyone is buying…versus food, water, or how about cold medicine…..heck, what about Chalk Paint®?

Lucky for me, I have cases of toilet paper leftover from the annual art festival that we host every September……and I have cases of Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan!

So, plan ahead and go visit your local stockist and pick up a can of your favorite color, or try a new color like Oxford Navy or Lem Lem. If you do not have a local stockist and would like to use The Purple Painted Lady as a resource – we are here, fully stocked and ready to support and help you with any questions you might have with a painting project! If you place your order before 3pm Eastern time Monday through Friday, we will pack and get your package out that same day. And depending on where you are located, you should have it within 2 – 3 business days.

So, the moral of this story, is to buy stock in the toilet paper companies, if you see some tp on a shelf at a store, buy it to sell on the black market….and don’t forget to order your Chalk Paint® so while you are home – hopefully waiting out this global issue, you can still be creative and productive!

Trish Turned the BIG 5.0.

This may be a “TMI” blog post……but I turned 50 a little over a week ago. Yep, I did …and there….. I said it! LOL I think whenever each of us is blessed to graduate from one decade to the next it brings a range of emotion. Hopefully all are good, but for me …there is always a little tinge of a melancholy – emotional farewell.

I remember when I became a teenager…I was sad because it meant I was no longer a “kid.” Here I am today and feel anyone younger than 40 is just a “kid.” I guess it is all in your perspective and I will probably feel anyone who is 50 is just a kid, if I hopefully make it to 70 or 80…or heck….90!

My last year, being 49 was a great year for me in all senses, professionally and personally. I accomplished some very cool goals with my business, managed a bunch of overwhelming tasks that truthfully, I think some would have crumbled under the pressure and personally, focused on my health and close relationships.

My dad passed away from cancer a week and half before my 12th birthday in 1982. He was only 47. He was a wonderful man and every year on my birthday…of course, I think about him. But breaking past the milestone of 47 meant alot to me. But there was something about turning 50 with the goal to have lower cholesterol and blood pressure that was super important to me. Many have never struggled with their health and that is a blessing for them!

For me…it was not quite a straight path but I am really proud to say, that I did it! I saw this sign that says, “Success is never owned. It is only rented, and the rent is due every day.” This is true for all aspects of life or any goal you might have in business, relationships and health. I would like to think I pay a little rent every day with the choices I have made and continue to make and my daily decisions. It is not always easy, but nothing worthwhile ever is.

And although this post is not related to paint, or a “how to”….I do feel that “The Purple Painted Lady” is little more than a paint resource to many people and even if we have not met face to face…..we are friends. So, here is just glimpse into one of the millions of thoughts bouncing around in my head at any one minute. LOL

If you are reading this…I just want to thank you for being part of the extended Purple Painted Lady Family!

Napoleonic Blue Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan and Oxford Navy

This is post is dedicated to Sarah Dunlavy who asked if we could show some examples of Napoleonic Blue Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan mixed with Graphite…. We created a video that we will be sharing on our Youtube – but for now….I just wanted to share this photo.

We mixed Napoleonic Blue with Graphite in a few different mix ratios and then we mixed Oxford Navy with Old White……I think my two favorite mixes of all were the mix of:

Napoleonic Blue and Graphite in equal amounts – meaning 1:1

Oxford Navy and Old White in a 4 to 1 mix.
