Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jf3men Great American Decor Chalky Finish!
Awesome American decor chalky finish relic in 8 ounce looks stunning, was easy to use and could easily make any and all pieces come back to life with this finish! The directions were to easy to follow and apply which is nice for first time chalk painters or painting professionals alike. The 8oz. is small for bigger jobs but just right for smaller! The paint was easy to apply and clean up !

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by babsbanko Worked just as well as AS!
I have used the more expensive AS chalk paint on other projects....this worked just as well, and for 1/4 of the price! My project was a seldom used bed and dresser, so in fairness to AS, will have to see how durable the finish is. But, for the price, can't beat it!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Robin Quick, easy paint.
I used this chalk paint to update some old bedroom furniture. It took 3 coats and I had to go back and get more 8 oz. jars to completely cover the three pieces of furniture that I was painting, but this chalk paint was easy to apply and it looked nice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SouthernUtahBoy Fantastic for my craft project!
I observed my wife using this product on project she recently worked on. We weren't too sure how well this stuff would work, but my wife loves it so much, she plans on purchasing more of it. As you can see in the photo I attached, she coated a wooden letter "J" and later on, glued a collection of pictures after it dried. It was easier than spray painting and achieved the look she wanted. It only took about 30 minutes to dry, and only required 2 coats to get the rich finish. Also a pleasant surprise is a little goes a long way. One could easily use this to coat an entire tabletop if needed. It is true that no sanding or priming is required before application. This chalky paint is perfect for all sorts of crafts, artwork, or projects.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rockingchair Original modern or vintage finish for your furniture
The product goes a long way. I gave two hands to my rocking chair and I have used not even 1/3 of the paint.
This paint does not require sanding or priming, it dries very fast and beautifully, and doesn't smell.
I recommend reading about different techniques to create vintage or modern finishes with it. It is a versatile product with lots of possibilities!

I love this paint! It took only 2 coats to for full coverage on the furniture I was painting. I did not need to sand or use a primer before. The color looks awesome, it's a dark charcoal grey color. I mixed this color with the yesteryear, it was the exact medium grey I wanted.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Judson Great for unique finish!
This was my first experience with chalk paint & I was leery at first, but I love it! It was the easiest paint I've ever worked with! The chalky/matte finish makes it pretty much impossible to mess up with this paint. I experimented a little on scrap pieces until I got the semi-weathered look I was shooting for & then dove into painting a media stand made of untreated lumber. It turned out exactly as I'd hoped!
I went one surface at a time, only covering part of the surface with paint and then going back over it with a wet paintbrush. The water helped the paint go farther and thinned it out some so I could go back over it with a damp towel in a few places to remove a little of the paint so the wood grain showed through.
I definitely recommend experimenting ahead of time to figure out what kind of finish you want & how to best achieve it. All in all, this paint is fantastic though! I painted this entire stand inside & out with one 8 oz jar & still have a little leftover.
This had to be finished before Christmas, so I didn't have time to wait on the Americana Decor Clear Cream Wax to arrive. I'm sure it provides an excellent finish, but I can't attest to that. Instead, I used a very thin coat of water based semi-gloss polyurethane, immediately going back over it with a towel to remove any excess. It was just enough to provide some protection without considerably changing the look of the piece. If you were to use this paint on something like picture frames or something else with little to no surface traffic, I'm not sure that a top coat would be necessary.
Bottom line - great paint that's very versatile & fun to experiment with!
