    I wouldn't do it. Won't hold up to daily use. Rustoleum, Daich, or Giani countertop paint kits.

  • Hi Gwyn,

    I would also not recommend chalk paint. However here is a tutorial that uses a latex satin or semi gloss paint.

    Yes, do not chalk paint any high use area. I chalk painted a guest bed and it has chips all over it, and it is definitely not a high use area! And, I coughed up the $$$ for Annie Sloan brand. Very disappointed. Those counter top kits the others recommended get great reviews.
