MINT by Michelle Fairy Queen Decoupage Paper with Annie Sloan Graphite Chalk Paint

OMG…..this is my favorite MINT by Michelle Decoupage Paper currently! It is called Fairy Queen. MINT by Michelle Decoupage Papers are crazy easy to use and give big impact!

This particular dresser was painted using Graphite Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan first. We did two coats right over the pre-existing paint. Graphite Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan has amazing coverage. We did two coats total. Once the last application of Graphite paint was totally dry, we applied the Fairy Queen MINT by Michelle Decoupage Paper.


We used Annie Sloan’s Image Medium. We brushed it on the area where we

We Moved! Our new digs are at 2620 RT 31, Palmyra NY 14522

Hey there! It is just me, Trish. I am just one of the mighty team at The Purple Painted Lady.

WE MOVED and are totally open for business at our new location as of December 2021. Find us at:

2620 RT 31 Palmyra NY 14522 Same phone number 585.750.6056

We love our new building! It is spacious, has heated floors, and a dedicated workshop area. In spring 2022, we will be opening a coffee shop inside too!

We had been in our Macedon, NY shop for almost 8 years but this new building is some serious exciting news! We moved 2 miles east to a space that is three times bigger in December 2021. Our Macedon shop (shown below) has been our home and this building has been wonderful to us. But a new chapter has started ………..

Our new space is at 2620 RT 31 Palmyra NY 14522 and we officially opened there on December 18, 2021. We out grew the Macedon store years ago but were waiting for the right building and location to come available. And late in 2020, I heard gossip about a NAPA Auto Parts store possibly being put up for sale. Recognize that “NAPA AUTO” blue color?

So, after practically a year of waiting, twists and turns….we bought it! And within 5 days of closing on it ……it was painted by Mac Stringer Painting! We found their pricing to be very good and they were extremely responsive and helpful. We highly recommend them.

Our new building has great bones…..and even better, …….. heated floors! Living in the north east those floors are going to be amazing! You know how when your feet are cold- it is hard for your whole body to get warm? Well, me and the team will all be wearing flip flops now in January! Like I shared, our new space is 6000 sq ft. When we first moved in, it was an empty big building that we hold a roller skating party in.

Doesn’t it look great already?

We also had the lock rekeyed, the potholes filled, new lights installed, a grain bin brought in to be our space for clothing we sell, and soon the concrete floors will be acid washed and sealed.

Stay tuned because we have some really cool things planned for you in 2022!!
