Easily add history and character to any surface with KILZ® CHALK STYLE PAINT. It goes on thick, for excellent hide, and requires very little surface preparation. Depending on the vision you have for the project, simply apply 1 or 2 coats on a clean, dust-free, or lightly sanded surface. To enhance durability, seal the surface afterward with KILZ® CLEAR SEALING WAX. An “antique” look can be achieved by applying two contrasting colors, distressed with sandpaper, and sealed with KILZ® DARK SEALING WAX.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful coverage ! My favorite by far ! Could not wait to try chalk paint this was my very first project and this kilz chalk paint white was the brand I first tried and I’ve tried others since then but I keep going back to kilz chalk paint , see photo - this brand has a beautiful lovey coverage , the tv console in photo was once a dark ugly fake cherry wood ( was also a tall 1989 entertainment center that I broke down and rebuilt to fit today’s type flat screen ) since it was fake wood I knew I had to do the prep so I bought kilz primer and scuffed it a bit with my sander , but that’s not really necessary for all projects , I didn’t do any prep for the bathroom vanity also painted with my favorite chalk paint by kilz ! You gotta try it for yourself , the price is reasonable compared to other chalk paint brands , note - that you’ll get many projects out of a qt size can ! Once you try it , trust me you’ll want to paint everything you own !

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Color different than advertised. Painted my dresser. Color dried several shades lighter than an the can. This was very disappointing. I will now have to repaint. Paint was hard to apply because it was very thick. It clumped in some places. It did cover well and looked nice once completed and dried. It was just not the color I expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Coverage, Great Quality, and Great Price! I used this a few days ago on some furniture flipping projects I'm currently working on, and I have to say that this is absolutely in my top 3 favorite chalk paint brands! The coverage and consistency were perfect, with a very rich and even finished color. Would absolutely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Actually covers! I bought this paint because I needed to paint some furniture. This isTHE best chalk paint I have ever used! Other chalk paints left a matte top that felt rough, not KILZ! The paint went on smooth and felt smooth after it dried. It also covered great. I would recommend to anyone who needs to paint furniture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Transformation I did a bathroom remodel and had to cut cost. So I opted to try chalk paint. I went with kilz due to the color selection. I did 2 coats.and sealed with water based polyacrylic. It went on smooth..flawless. the color is superb, I can not think of anything negative about this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Kilz Chalk Paint I bought Kilz Chalk paint to refurbish 3 chairs. I sanded the chairs as much as I could with a hand sander. I washed the chairs with TSP and rinsed with plain water. I applied a primers and then painted with 2 coats of the chalk paint. I was ecstatic; the chairs looked beautiful. But when I applied a water-based polyurethane sealer; color from the remaining old finish leaked through. I was no longer ecstatic! I researched this problem and I quickly learned that this is a common problem with chalk paint. I re-sanded the chairs and reapplied a primer. After a quick trip to the paint store; I reapplied a latex paint to my chairs. Don't waste your money buying chalk paint!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money! Bought it excited to see how it was going to look. Open it up to see it all clumped in the bottom of the can. All water on top, I tried mix it and shaking it but there is no saving it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Non complete finish I tried this product on two dressers. It took three coats to completely coat. When finished, l could not touch painted surface, even with gloves, without leaving marks on the surface. I also tried to seal the surface with Kilz sealing wax. I could not do the long flat surfaces without varying degrees of shine and consistent finish. I have painted many projects in my life and this was the most difficult Paint I have ever used. I love Kilz primer, but I will never use Kilz chalk style paint again. Very disappointed!

Where to Use

KILZ® CHALK STYLE PAINT can be applied over most existing finishes with little surface preparation. Use to “up-cycle” vintage furniture. Apply to old or new wood, cast stone, concrete, or even metal surfaces†. Do not use on horizontal surfaces subject to foot traffic.


Surface Preparation

Preparation Makes Perfect!

  • Before applying KILZ® CHALK STYLE PAINT, clean the surface to make sure it is free of loose or peeling paint, mold and mildew stains, rust and all other dirt and debris.

  • We recommend lightly sanding glossy surfaces and repairing any imperfections.

  • Remove all dust with a damp cloth and allow to dry.


  • Use KILZ® CHALK STYLE PAINT on properly prepared uncoated or painted interior surfaces.
  • For wood that contains tannins, such as Redwood and Cedar, a coat of primer such as KILZ PREMIUM Interior/Exterior water-based primer is recommended.

  • †For optimal adhesion to difficult surfaces, use KILZ PREMIUM Primer.

  • Follow the instructions on the back of the primer label and top coat it with KILZ CHALK STYLE PAINT.


  • Shake the container thoroughly before opening for application.

  • Use on properly prepared surfaces.

  • Use product when the surface and air temperatures are between 50-90°F and will remain in that range for at least 4 hours after applying.

  • For application, use a Nylon/Polyester brush or a high density foam roller.

  • Up to 100 sq. ft. of coverage per quart with two coats.

  • If you find this product to be too thick, add up to 2 oz. of water per quart to thin it to the desired thickness for smooth and easy application.
