Customer Questions & Answers

Where can I see all 29 colors

Asked by: Mamar

I like this color. Would it work for redoing kitchen cabinets?

Asked by: Annc

What type of varnish is best to seal paint to keep it from scratching so easily?

Several of the reviews indicate that it does scratch fairly easily. The paint is water based so does that mean a water based varnish is necessary? How can one tell from the varnish label that it is water based?

Americana Decor 16 oz. Relic Chalky Finish is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this chalk paint! Love this paint. Does not show brush marks and covers very well. This is definitely a lighter grey color and much lighter than pictured. Wish Home Depot carried more variety in store so it didn't have to be shipped. Ultimately, love it and will continue buying it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! The was the easiest paint I've ever worked with. I have been wanting to transform a furniture set that has been in the family for 100 years. I was originally going to purchase the Annie Sloane chalk paint, but really did not want to pay $38 for a pint of paint. I did a little more research and stumbled across this paint on pinterest, and am so happy that I did. This paint was half the price, made in the US, and the best part is that you are supposed to use the cheap little paint brushes with it. There was no odor, no dripping and great coverage. My husband doubted this project from the start because of the price of the paint, and also because it said that there was no prepping needed as in sanding or stripping. He is now a chalk paint believer hahaha. This paint is fantastic and the furniture looks beautiful! Now I would like to paint everything with it. Will definitely purchase again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Did the job! I purchased this paint hoping it would be a cheaper dupe for annie sloan chalk paint. It did the job! I specifically bought it to paint the Ikea Norden Gateleg table, it wasn't enough to paint the entire piece so I'll have to purchase another can. Overall, it was a great buy. Color was exactly as pictured.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE AMERICANA CHALK PAINT! I have to disagree with the last reviewer. I first bought Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and a friend told me about Americana. I did a comparison and found no difference at all except in price. I was very pleased with the out come. Our family runs a Kitchen and flooring gallery. When I painted my cabinets using both Annie Sloan and Americana , no one could tell the difference and I've had many compliments by people thinking they we're bought in our store. Will be buying more for future projects!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A little goes a long way!! Used this for my first chalk paint project and it was the quickest and easiest project I've done yet!! No prep work is needed. Just two coats covered beautifully and have a bit left to spare...and this piece is very large!! I finished it with the clear wax painted on with a Purdy brush (at the paint counter) and buffed it with a lint free cloth. Beautiful finish with a bit of a shine. Wish I could post a photo to show how great it looks!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Chalk Paint I was so happy to find Chalk Paint at Home Depot after researching Annie Sloan. I have now painted several pieces of furniture with great results. This is a dark gray/charcoal color that looks good with or without wax. Only complaint is I expected it to be bigger, this is only a bit bigger than the small, however, a little does go a long way, especially if you mix with a little bit of water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the best paint ever I have My daughter has a set of furniture from grandma and want to paint they since last summer. I was very nervous when I hear she said that . After I did some research and found out this chalky paint, I am excited to give it a try. This paint do not need sand or polish which my husband would not believe so. But all I did was dust and wipe down the furniture and ready to paint. I did all my daughter's furniture with two of this 16-oz relic chalky finish paint and put a 8-oz of clear wax- All done! All the furniture look cleaner and more beautiful and shiny. My daughter and I are all very happy with the finish. Now I could not wait for the summer to paint my son's furniture. The paint do dry fast. So it is not bad idea to add some water. Since this is my first time use this paint, I did not know how much water I need and I did not add any water to it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product! I have done several pieces using these Americana chalky paints, and they are fantastic! The go on so easily and clean up quickly as well! My only complaint is that our Home Depot only carries a few colors, so I have to order online if I want anything other than what they carry. But at least they have free shipping to the store! Such a great value, especially when compared with other chalk paints. Just make sure you use a wax or varnish on top to protect it from getting scratched!
