Chalk paint is a popular choice for painting furniture and other home décor items because of its matte finish and ability to distress easily.

While the finished product looks great, it is not durable if you don't seal it. So, how do you apply a sealant after painting?

You can seal chalk paint by preparing the surface, applying wax, buffing it, and giving it time to cure.

You can also opt for polycrylic or polyurethane to seal chalk paint.

WAX

Wax is great for creating a subtle sheen on your project and is the recommended option for pieces that will only be exposed to a bit of wear and tear.

POLYCRYLIC

Polycrylic is the best sealer for moderate use and the one I use the most.

Polyurethane

Polyurethane is ideal for painted items directly exposed to liquids, as it's more durable and water resistant.
