Dry Brushing

Applying a dry brush effect of Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan in a different color over your base color can really bring life to your painted piece. Our customer Amy Straley transformed her secretary desk using Old White as the base and French Linen dry brushed over it. (you can even apply a dry brush effect directly over wood) Take a peek at THIS POST here on our website for some tips and suggestions when it comes to dry brushing:

Village Gate Store Closed til 1/11 at 12:30pm


Our Rochester NY location of The Purple Painted Lady inside Village Gate at 274 Goodman St N Rochester NY 14627 is going to be CLOSED til Friday, January 11th which is when we will reopen at 12:30pm because we are moving…..only 3 shops down from our current space.

The lighting is so much better and we will be in a more active location next to California Rollin’ Inc. and The Gate House.

Difference in Pure White, Original & Old White Chalk Paint® Facebook LIVE

We are excited about the global unification of Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan in regards to her packaging and some of her colors. 

There will be a transition period of some colors going from quarts to Litres and few colors will be changing a bit. 

The Purple Painted Lady will be hosting a Facebook LIVE on Thursday, December 27, 2018 at noon Eastern time. 

We will be opening Pure White, Original and Old White Chalk Paint® packaged in both Litres and Quarts and demoing the colors side by side.  

Tune in and ask questions. We will download the Facebook LIVE once it is over and save it on our YouTube channel. Don’t worry if you tune in late to the Facebook LIVE ….. once we are through, we will save it and the whole video from the beginning will be available on Facebook and YouTube.  Also- if you have difficulty with the stream or audio during the actual LIVE  – it will be fine once it is saved.  

This sure sounds confusing but we hope to help you with this video!
