I love chalk paint.  While milk paint seems to be very popular right  now, I have not had the urge to switch over.  Chalk paint gives whatever is painted a great textured finish and the paint can be applied over just about anything.  It dries pretty fast, too, which is a bonus for impatient people like me. And since I started using furniture wax to finish off my projects, I couldn't be happier with using this type of paint for all sorts of projects.
