  • Some things to know:

-Chalk paint has quite a matte (chalky) finish, but you receive luster by buffing.  Still, the sheen would equate to a satin finish…or maybe even somewhere in between satin and semi-gloss.

  • -brush strokes will appear in the first coat, and as it dries, but it will dry to a smooth finish.  every now and then, I’ll have some dry with faint strokes in it, but nothing that doesn’t look natural and again, time-worn.

  • –You can use chalk paint on any surface.  It adheres to almost anything, and I’ve painted laminate, particle board, solid wood, leather, old and new furniture alike.  It’s held up beautifully.  I will tell you this if you wax improperly, that’s where you’ll have more trouble.

  • wait until your wax is no longer tacky before you buff it.  This will stop any paint “rolling” off.  So, yes, as long as it’s sealed it’s very durable.
