Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lovepaint Very pleased
I actually love this color. I wanted to try chalk paint. I started with an old chair very dark wood good sound but horrible seat cover. I love this color. It is a light sage green (gray/green) in natural light, but at night with artificial light it looks grey blue, sometimes even light lavender. I just think it's lovely. I was very happy with the ease of application, cleanup. I'm now going to do my dining room chairs and table and have gray on the tabletop. The chair looked beautiful, I refurbished the seat completely and then used a pretty bird patterned fabric. I put it out for free, it was a fun project.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shayna Great paint!
I love using this paint! It's very easy to use and goes on smoothly. Items need little to no prep work and the paint adheres very well. I've used several colors in the line and am always very happy with the end result! This color is a light blue/gray and looks great with the clear creme wax or the dark brown wax for distressing. Will definitely be using this product again!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DIY Color was off
I ordered vintage which has a label that looks like a greenish/gray. After applying it appears more light blue/gray.
Sad because it is for my unborn daughters dresser. Wanted green not blue.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by PetPhotog Not the same as color shown online
The swatch I saw online for "vintage" was a green/blue vintage color I've seen, but the color I received ended up being lighter and more blue, almost robin's egg blue. I'm disappointed that these paints aren't available inside of stores where people can check them out. This is a lower-quality chalk paint. I also noticed that the creme wax to use on top and buff to protect the paint says it has to be re-applied about twice a year. Once I'm done, I want to be done.
Also, the paint took two coats. Without a second coat, lots of white streaks showed up in the brush strokes showing the white Zinnser primer I used underneath. It's not the brush. I used a good quality China white brush.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MiMom Good quality chalk paint for refinishing in cottage style
I have used other chalk/clay paints in the past, but they were from specialty stores and much more expensive. These types of paints cover a large area, are easy to use, and don't require sanding anything beforehand.
I used 3 of these to cover a large oval dining table with a pedestal base, a large buffet hutch and 6 chairs. You can "wipe it back" with a damp cloth so it has the appearance of natural aging down to the original wood. You can also use sandpaper, but I prefer the wet method.
I will state that this color is not a light grey as everything appears to be. It is more a light blue-grey. I did mix in some of the darker grey Relic color to get a truer grey.
You will also need to use the varnish, I chose the matte varnish, to finish the project. One coat is usually enough to protect even hard used areas like table tops. If you are more comfortable, use two coats.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bryn Awesome price...great consistency. ..end product was remarkable. Only problem was that the color wasn't very clos
The color indicated on top of product was more "green"...what I got was a pale blue. Loved the chalky finish. It is a great paint to distress with. I think they could work on their color tho. Id definitely tell a friend to use it. Works as well as Annie Sloan chalk paint....

I had a small project to do with chalk paint and this size of 16oz. was perfect. I could not tell the difference in this vs Anne Sloan chalk paint.
