BEHR® Chalk Decorative Aerosol Paint is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from You won't believe it...fabulous About a month ago I purchased BEHR spray chalk paint. Needed to 2 table bases, quick furniture flip for a customer, the covid19 cleared the shelves of paint and there was 1 can of Behr in Noir. I own a furniture painting business and honestly have painted probably 300 pieces with chalk paints. I was not familiar with this product, this was the first I had seen it. It was amazing!!! Spray was smooth, coverage solid, even, color deep and rich. One coat was all it took, coverage was consistent and results smooth matte. Very elegant visually. My pieces painted in BEHR are flying out of my garagd.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Missing Important Information on Can & Website I started out with Behr chalk paint brush-on then decided to buy a rattle can as the next coat. Neither the rattle can nor the website specify whether there needs to be a final wax coating after applying the sprayed-on finish, a valid question since most spray paints in a can are oil-based and therefore would not need a wax coating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very forgiving. I usually buy the brush on chalk paint but wanted to try the aerosol on this small table. I like the way it covers. Easy to use and gets into all the corners. Dries fast too. I'll buy it again. Hopefully there will be more of a color selection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my new fave for all diy projects! I bought this because I've been wanting to try a spray chalk paint! I bought this in the white and omg was this so easy and had such a beautiful finish. I bought one can and used it in a small end table and I still have some leftover! I will definitely purchase this again for all my DIY projects!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ever! I tried this on my latest project, a 1940’s buffet. I used matte black! It turned out beautiful! I then tried the another brand of spray chalk paint on another project! There is no comparison. Behr spray chalk paint covers better, covers more area & has a nicer finish!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent coverage I received this product at the Haven Conference and used it to spray over painted black legs of a side table. First I did use a primer and the chalk paint Pale Moon. Love the result.
