First thing I've learnt about chalk paint is that it's incredibly easy to use, no primer and sanding saves you a lot of time and energy. The paint is not waxy/sandy as you might imagine "chalky" being, instead it's smooth and very easy to roll on or paint with. Chalk paints are also very forgiving, I tried to stick to keeping my brush strokes straight and in one direction, but it does get hard in tight spots, and yet, after drying and adding finishing wax, it's smooth and even. This is also a great value for me, I was able to paint both side tables (3' tall, 25" wide and 16" in depth) with the entire bottle. I wasn't able to paint the complete inside with this color, but I always intended to make the inside white, so it wasn't very disappointing to me.
After my experience using chalk paints for the first time, I'm completely hooked on chalk paints, I doubt I'd go back to normal paints for my furniture DIYs. This chalk paint is a great value at under $10, and I definitely recommend it if this is your first time chalk painting. You're in good hands with this chalk paint, and this particular color looks better on my furniture than I could have ever hoped for. I'll be buying other colors soon.
The photo is with only ONE COAT of chalk paint! I couldn't believe it covered the old acrylic so easily, I didn't even sand it! It doesn't even NEED a second coat! I bought the big 16 oz jar and I didn't even use a quarter of it. I have SO MUCH paint left over I might just go on a furniture painting spree. Seriously, a little bit goes a looooooong way, so keep that in mind when you're deciding what size jar to buy. You probably need less than you think.
The color I used is Maui Sands. It's a really nice charcoal gray, which is the exact color I was looking for. The gold metallic I have on the handles is a different brand, Rust-Oleum I think.
I am so so so happy with the way this turned out, I would not hesitate to buy this again!!
