In recent years, it’s become popular to use chalky paint to refinish furniture and create an aged, antique look.

That’s because this kind of paint is easy to work with and goes on just about any dry, clean surface that you want to change and give a vintage look.

Chalky paint is thick, so it doesn’t drip easily. In addition, it covers well, with very little preparation required.

Now, specialty painters often mix their own chalky paint formulas to achieve a flat finish that can be sanded to create a distressed look. But that’s also a long, drawn-out process that might not interest your average do-it-yourselfer.

Fortunately, BEHR Chalk Decorative Paint makes it easy for DIYers to create a trendy look, and with less hassle.

You simply apply the chalky paint, distress the surface, if desired, and then apply the decorative wax. What you get is a flat sheen with a velvety smooth finish — it doesn’t get simpler than that!

Best of all, this chalky paint is a versatile product that will match your style and needs. The paint is tint-able to over 500 colors, and the buttery formula is easy to apply on old and new wooden furniture, cast stone, concrete and even metal surfaces.

So, when you’ve got this chalky paint, you don’t have to be a pro to get professional results and create one-of-a-kind accent pieces.
