  1. Can you write on this chalk paint ? I want to paint the inside doors of my kitchen cabinets. Can I paint with the homemade chalk paint? This is all furniture and there’s no chalk writing on any of it. Thank you.

    • Hi Elaine! Definitely, you can write on them using chalks! Painting the inside doors of your kitchen cabinets is a brilliant idea! Let us know how it went, ok? Happy DIY-ing!

  2. Love the ease of this technique/product! I would love to paint an old bench for my cabin porch, but although it is covered, it is quite cold and snowy all winter. Will the elements, wind, moisture etc, be harmful to the finish?

    • I haven’t used it for outdoor furniture. Just to be sure it will be protected I’d recommend you add top coat like a clear wax finish. Let us know how it goes! 🙂
