    I’m not a fan of chalk paints durability as for a table that will get a lot of use. I’ve used plain old flat paint from the hardware store. Most also sell a dark wax that can be brushed on then wiped off to give the table a more “antiqued” or “worn” look. Finish with a coat of polycrylic to add durability.

    I am not a fan of chalk paints durability and usually use flat paint from the hardware. However if you already have the paint you can use a dark wax over the top. You brush it on and wipe it off. It gives the piece an antiqued look. Also put a coat of polycrylic on at least the top to make it more durable. Goood luck.

    You can thin paint down where it’s almost like water and spraying it works best! But you could wipe it on with a rag too. Just take a little practice to get a even coat on how you want it! Let dry completely then you can lacquer or varnish over the white wash
