Dori on Aug 04, 2016Thank you sooo much for being forthright about chalk paint. I was told Benjamin Moore has a very good paint for furniture. Having read your comments, I think that is the road I will take for painting my furniture. Sign me "Grateful"
B Juliana Leo on Aug 05, 2016There is a paint that I have used for years - you can get it at www.fauxmarketplace.com. It is called SETCOAT - It comes in various colors OR you can get the tint base and get it colorized from your favorite paint store (colorizing tints can be made at any Paint store) SETCOAT is made to be used for Walls And Furniture, but the beauty of this product is its cabinet durability. Its thicker than most paints, and can be thinned for spraying. (by 10%) SETCoat also can be textured or painted smooth. Depending on application process. TO texture it, you can even Add some Joint compound to the mix, to thicken it. I know Annie Sloan has done a great job marketing their product, but truthfully, I find that buffing it with Wax, to be tedious. I'd rather just paint on a nice topcoat and be done with you. YOU can still get the same look. I know, I've done this many times.
