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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving Behr Chalk Paint and Finishing Wax ! I’ve used many Behr products for my home projects and was so excited to try their new line of chalk paints and finishing wax. I used Classic Noir chalk paint over old pine. Prep was easy with just a soap and water cleaning. The paint went on so smoothly and the coverage was amazing. Waxing was easy and really gave it a perfect finish! So inspired by the transformation and ease of use I completed a second project with Farmhouse White over my laminate dresser (no sanding required and it’s holding up beautifully!) Also, cean up is a breeze. Highly recommend these products!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth application My laundry room cabinets were dark and dreary. Purchased Behr Chalk Paint, Easter Morning, (a soft pretty yellow) and after cleaning the cabinets I applied 2 coats of the paint over the dark cabinets and completely changed the room. I then decided to use Behr's clear wax, so easy to apply, and cabinets had a soft sheen, so pretty!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chalk it up! I tried this paint for the first time and I must say I love it. It’s incredibly smooth and the finish is spectacular. It only took one coat and I used the brush and roll method.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My preferred Chalk paint I was initially drawn to this product for the affordability and was pleasantly surprised with the quality. Following years of paying the high cost of a competitors chalk paint, I now exclusively use Behr’s chalk paint. A great bonus is the ability to customize color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No comparison Behr is definitely the best chalk paint that I’ve used. It’s been consistently good and no clumping issues. I’ve used the boutique paints and no way are they as good as the Behr. Plus it’s mixed and shook when you buy it so it’s always fresh with no issues.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful all around Although I’m not a skilled furniture painter as so many people seem to be now, I’ve used a few various chalk paints. I googled “best chalk paints” and decided to try this based on the price and the reviews I read. Big mistake. This paint was terrible! The coverage was so uneven, splotchy, uneven color (I bought black), and much thinner than I thought it would be. I stirred it for at least a good 5-10 minutes, shook it, and stirred it again. After 2 coats, I just stopped. It was so bad and I use very good & expensive brushes. I even tried 3 different brushes to see if that was the issue. I was so disappointed because (1) I have another pint of yellow and (2) they have an incredible selection of colors as opposed to other chalk paint companies. I’m hoping the yellow won’t be as disastrous as the black.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE this chalk paint! So happy I used Behr chalk paint on my kitchen cabinets last year! The cabinets are maple and had an orangish/brown stain. I lightly sanded them first, used a primer, sanded between the 2 coats of chalk paint and finished with clear wax. They’ve held up beautifully! I’m a messy cook and haven’t had any issues cleaning off pasta sauce splatters and coffee drips. I just painted my coffee table, dining chairs and a small stool. Gorgeous! Took less than two coats. Colors used- white base, straight out of the can and Classic Noir. Clear wax, dark wax on table feet.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointing I purchased this paint in black for redoing an old pine armoire. I read all the directions and washed and dusted the furniture before I began. It said not to worry about brush strokes as they will blend. It did take 2 coats (each a day apart), which I was expecting since I was working with a dark color on a light base. But, when it came time to apply the wax - what a mess!! Again, I followed the directions, applied a small amount with the proper brush and worked it in. Waited for it to dry and then used two buff rags to clean. I have been buffing one door front for the last 30 minutes and the finish is still sticky and leaving fingerprints - and ALL the brushstrokes are now glaringly apparent. So disappointing. I may purchase a buffer attachment for my drill and see if that helps with getting the wax to look decent. If not, it looks like I'm going to throw out a perfectly good piece of furniture. Disappointing and a waste of time and money. I have used chalk paint before, just not the Home Depot brand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible Experience I am very disappointed with Behr chalk paint. I have used a few other brands of chalk paint and love the ease of application and overall look of chalk paint. However, the Behr chalk paint goes on great for the 1st coat, but any subsequent coats go on terrible!! There are two issues; splotchy/streaky appearance, and texture. The second coat appears to be lifting up the 1st coat and gives a weird texture to my cabinets. I waited a full 24 hours after the 1st coat and still had this issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All the color choices! I used Behr Dry Brown with the Dark wax on my honey oak cabinets. I was looking for a medium rustic brown and am happy with how it turned out. I applied 3 coats of the chalk paint and lightly sanded between coats. I let it dry over night before starting the wax. When I got too heavy handed with the wax on the first door, I used Krud Kutter prepaint on a lint free cloth to remove the excess.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Use, Quick Dry! We wanted to spruce up a couple of pieces of furniture (desk, night stand, dresser) and discovered Behr chalk decorative paint. It was easy to apply, quick to dry (it took almost an hour) and affordable for our tight budget. Recommend to all!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Streaky I have also found it streaky. I have done 3 coats and it still looks uneven. I used a high quality brush. Not sure if it's the dark color but I did not find it easy to use. I might go over it with another brand unless behr can give me better advice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So many color options! I have now used this on two projects, a side table and a piano. Very easy to apply, practically goof-proof. Definitely needed two coats, some spots needed 3 on the piano. I love that I was able to choose any Behr paint color to make into the chalk paint, so many possibilities. I finished with the Behr brand wax.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Pleased I applied the Behr Chalk Paint Pacifica Blue to and old chest that my wife and I picked up at an estate sale and we are very pleased. I previously used another home center brand and by comparison Behr covered better, went on easier and dried smoother and silkier which is what I had expected and desired. I could have stayed with just the one coat but decided to add a second for a true solid coverage finish. There are also plenty of color choices to bring back to life and old piece in the hue that fits your taste. Looking forward to applying the wax today. I did use a semi round brush. And I have my eye on a few other furniture items that need Behr chalk paint this winter.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not impressed I have a small furniture restoration business and have tried so many different chalk paints. I am truly disappointed in this one and I’m so bummed because you offer so many great color options. The colors go on thick, they bubble and are not smooth like other chalk paints I’ve used. I tried black first and was not impressed but I have it another shot and got a baby because I loved the shade so much. It was just as bad as the black. I am so disappointed.
