I bought this paint to refresh my daughters' chalkboard that no longer liked to be written on with chalk. Then I decided to revamp my pantry door. I was really tired of my kids asking what's for breakfast/lunch/dinner. Now they just read the door!! I also just painted the closet door for my entry closet and I still have more than half a can left! This stuff spreads like butta on smooth surfaces! It's best after it cures for a couple of days and then you need to prime it by rubbing a layer of chalk all over. I find that it's best to use an old rag to erase with, and if I want a really clean look I use a wet rag. My new favorite type of paint!! I have so many plans thanks to Pinterest!
