  • Chalk Paint® is the BEST paint on the market for painting furniture
  • It can be used on practically any surface – indoors and out
  • Use it on walls for a soft matte finish or wax it for a polished plaster effect
  • It can even be used to paint floors


  • Use one color or layer colors
  • Distress and apply waxes to create an old world patina
  • Chalk Paint® can be diluted with water to make a wash (to show the wood grain) or thickened to use as an impasto
  • Very little black is used so the colors can be mixed in any combination

Ease of Use:

  • No need to prime or prepare
  • The colors are mixed intelligently and the web site shows how you can adapt your colors for your use
  • It’s flexible so you can be creative and change your mind without hassle – after all … it’s a girls’ paint, but boys can use it too!
  • Chalk Paint® washes out of your brushes with ease and leaves very little mess

Go Green:

  • Best of all, Chalk Paint® is extremely low in VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) so it won’t harm you or the environment
