I have old 1975 bedroom suit. I would like to paint without sanding and have heard chalk paint can do that. Is that true?

    It will stick to anything but you may want to sand any chips or fill scratches first. Once it dries, it’s good to go. However, be sure to use a chaukpaint wax, even clear because it can absorb oils. Plus the paint is super easy to make yourself. I like the plaster of Paris recipe. Google it.

    It doesn't come in spray paint, you'll have to use a paint sprayer, but the brush strokes are what is cool about chalk paint. Does need a clear top coat to finish it

    You will need your own sprayer, be sure to strain the paint into the sprayer using an old stocking, and then thin it so it doesn't clog the sprayer.

  • Rust-Oleum has chalk paint in spray paint form, I've used it several times and love it. I would recommend getting the trigger that you can use on the spray cans, they're super cheap, to help control the spray and keep it even.

    I too have used the Rustoleum Chalked spray paint for many projects. Usually gives you a very smooth matte finish. BUT...please buy the matching Rustoleum clear sealer that you apply over the Rustoleum "spray" chalk paint. I have tried numerous times to use a different brand clear spray sealer or spray poly over the Rustoleum spray Chalk paint but it has bubbled up and peeled every time and ruined several of my projects. Also--if you are going to wax this Rustoleum spray paint it will be fine--just let your project sit for about 24 hours before you wax.
