DIY Milk- and Chalk-Painted Cabinet Reviews
“They have held up PERFECTLY! I am amazed. This photo was taken over a year after we finished painting them.”
Tasha says YES, she would do it again and recommend this to a friend: “Absolutely! It’s a cost effective way to completely update a kitchen on a budget, and it is holding up to a ton of wear and tear in our busy household! Plus, it’s a doable project for busy families since you don’t have to sand or prime first!” She rates the durability as 5 (Amazing. I expect this to last for many years.)

Heather | The Heathered Nest
Heather painted her bathroom vanity about a year ago with “chalk paint baby! No prep, just did it on the fly. Made a big difference for a little investment of time, and not a big investment of money, either.”
YES, Heather would do it again, and she rates it as a 4 (Great. It has lasted well and longer than I had anticipated.)
Heather’s tips: Definitely clean the surface well. I didn’t, because I’m lazy and like instant gratification. If you want the finish to last, do some prep.
Jessica | Mommy Envy
Jessica refinished her kitchen cabinets about a year ago, using her own chalk paint recipe. She also antiqued the lower cabinets with a stain.
YES she’d do this again and she rates it as a 4 (Great. It has lasted well and longer than I had anticipated.)
Jessica’s tips: Make sure you’ve cleared your schedule for the weekend and be ready to work. Plan to eat out because your kitchen will be out of commission.
