BEHR® Wax Decorative Finish is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked Great! I am die hard fan of another brand of chalk paint and wax, and have faithfully used it since 1997 when I painted by first armoire. But, when this product line came out I had to try it. First, it is so much easier to get because it's available at Home Depot and I don't have to special order it. Second: HALF THE COST! Whoohoo! So, I tried it with high hopes, I wanted to love it, but I am also a realist and so I tried it on a $10 fake wood entertainment center I bought off an online yard sale so if it failed, I wouldn't cry. Great news! The paint held up just like the chalk paint I have used for years! I used 2 coats, but I probably could have gotten away with 1 coat of the paint had I put forth more effort. I found 2 coats gives it a completely covered, smooth finish. I didn't sand, or do any prep work other than use a wet wipe to clean the piece. After the 2 coats, I let it dry for about 48 hours because life got busy and I didn't get back around to it. Waxing worked great! I a firm believer in a round wax brush. The wax is soft, super easy to apply, and the finish is smooth. I love a smooth finish on chalk painted furniture pieces. We actually got to try out the finish right away because my child spilled acrylic paint on the piece within 6 hours of me finishing it and it thankfully wiped right off. I did add some artistic knobs to the piece, but I am really happy with it! It's been about 2 weeks, and it is looking great. The products go on exactly like what you would expect from chalk paint and wax, the process and procedure for those of you who do this often, is exactly the same. The finished results are exactly the same between this and much more expensive chalk paint. I was extremely happily surprised and I will use this now as my go-to chalk paint for furniture pieces.
