What is Chalk Paint?

Everyone is talking about it but what is it? I get asked alllllll the time, it seems to have captured people’s curiosity. Well this paint has captured my heart! If you are not familiar with it and you’ve been wondering what it’s all about carry on reading.

Chalk paint is not to be confused with chalkboard paint, which is used on a painted surface to create a chalkboard. Chalk paint can be used for a wide variety of painting projects, not just wooden furniture but metal and walls, just about anything you want to dream up. It leaves a wonderful matt finish and extremely forgiving to use.
