Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleased with Behr Chalk Paint and wax I found the product easy to work with and was extremely pleased with the end result. I applied the onyx grey in long strokes going with the grain allowing some of the original to show through. I then waxed all of it with clear and after the clear was dry, highlighted with dark wax. After completely dry, buffed it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just like name brand chalk paint, but my color! I have used several chalk paints, but am always resticted by the color pallet of manufacturer. Since I really wanted a specific green, and hadnt found in my go-to chalk paints, I went to Home Depot and picked up several BEHR paint swatch cards. When I found the color I wanted, I took this “White Base” chalk paint to counter to see if they would tint the color of card. Guy tinted without pause, and I went home. Painted this old nightstand, and then waxed it. Looks beautiful! Very comparable to other chalk paints, but LESS EXPENSIVE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved From The Trash! Used this chalk paint to restore 2 dressers and a night stand for a bedroom. The pieces were not a set, so they did not match. Now that they are all painted the same and have new hardware they look as though they belong together. The room looks great! They were a dark stain and now are the antique white. Beautiful! the paint covered VERY WELL! I used the wax to seal. Completed within a day. Love Behr paint! Use it throughout my house.
