My yesteryear is more blue than the gray I wanted. I have one coat on and hesitate putting second coat. Suggestions?

Asked by: Glo
Folkart makes a Parisian Grey color that doesn't have as much blue in it. I'd just paint over what you've done with that.

Americana Decor 8 oz. Yesteryear Chalky Finish is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 18.

I thought it would dry to be the same as the sticker but it was much closer to what you see through the jar. It turned out ok but wish I had known that from the start. it did sand well for layering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Chalk Paint I like Americana Chalky Finish paint; it dries so smooth you'd think it must have been sprayed. I'm not fond of the wax finish coat step but found that Minwax Wipe-On Poly works great and it's less time consuming. I reapplied Americana, let dry and it was ready for the wipe on poly finish. The paint does adhere like crazy to wood and metal (that's all I've done) with minimal surface prep - but, if you use a finish coat with a sheen - all the imperfections show up. I found that light colors show less of the imperfections than black. I painted a rusty file cabinet black and you'd be hard pressed to fine those rusty areas on the floor edge. (no wax or poly top coat) An old chest I painted soft white with the poly finish and it feels like a sprayed on finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Paint!! This is the first chalk paint I've used. I recently repainted my bathroom cabinets with a cabinet paint kit. I liked it, but it took a long time to finish, and there weren't many color options. I wanted to try something different when painting my kitchen cabinets. I decided to try this chalk paint, because it's affordable. Plus, I could save time since a primer layer wasn't needed for the chalk paint to adhere. I was a little nervous since I'd never used chalk paint. I did a lot of research (reading tips, reviews, etc,) until I felt comfortable. Then I started the project. This paint is AMAZING!!! It's much easier to use than the cabinet paint kit I used in my bathroom. I applied two thin coats. It went on smoothly and solidly covered a lot of space - making it super affordable. I was able to paint my entire kitchen (6 drawers, 18 cabinet doors, and all the framing) with 1 1/2 little 8oz jars of this paint. I wanted solid grey cabinets (with no distressing). So, I used Yesteryear. It worked. It provided a complete coverage - no streaks of other colors peeking through. I love this paint!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my favorite paint! I tell everyone I come in contact with about this paint! It covers so smoothly. The color is soft and perfect. It is a great product that you can do so much with. I am finding project's just so I can use this paint! I have painted lamps, frames, stools, end and coffee tables, plastic Easter eggs, even a headboard. This paint covers beautifully on everything! I have yet to be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Paint I am a fan of this paint, its so easy to use, thick as whipped cream, it applies so easily. I wanted a vintage look for an old beatup desk I found along the road for free, after cleaning every inch of it, I started my project(the fun part), not only does it have the look I was going for,it gave the room a sweet new look, I'm off to buy more, there must be something that needs chalky paint........

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality paint Chalk paint is all the rage among those who enjoy refurbishing furniture and decorative items. This brand compares to the better known brands in quality and durability! I used it on a sideboard for the dining room, and also tried it on a small table for the outdoors - both look great, and with rain, the outdoor table is holding up nicely. Using online or in-store classes affords one the opportunity to glaze, weather, age, or create unique finishes. Great price, great quality, good color, good coverage!
