    Is chalky paint any good?

    Painters & Decorators

    What are the pros and cons of chalky paint? What jobs/surfaces is it suitable for and why? Is it costly? Anything else I should know about this sort of paint ?

    "Depends on what you're painting, great on wood so if you're up cycling old furniture.
    If you are decorating walls and ceiling it is designed for lime walls and old buildings that need to breath.
    Hope that helps Claire@G&M"
