Is chalk paint washable?

Becky HollowayKat =^.^=


I see so many projects, including kitchen cabinets, done with chalk paint. I wonder, is it washable? I want to paint my cabinets lighter than they are now, but afraid if the paint is flat it would not wash well. Any one experience this? Thanks, PK

    hi, well i painted my kitchen cabs and i love how they turned out, however, i used kilz, a heavy coat, let it dry for a day and a night, then painted them with a primer linen colour paint in satin, let that dry over night, touched up any that needed it, i then sanded them and waxed them with a good paste wax, i wipe them down daily with a wet rag, and they are holding up well, good luck with your project, remember (not like me) to take some before pics :)
