Does not protect from oil stains
I recently transformed my kitchen with the Country grey chalk paint and sealed it with the matte clear coat. It’s been nothing but problems. It’s been less then a week and I already have several stains from cooking oils etc.. I also used this to seal my top cabinets which I painted white and they turned yellow after 4 coats of white linen chalk paint. A complete waste of time and money. Will most likely have to strip 3 weeks of work and use latex paint or oil based paint.

Great top coat
It does have a stronger smell to it than the chalk paint, but I think it’s totally worth it!

Don't risk ruining your project
I purchased this to protect the linen white chalked paint that I used to re-finish my grandfather's 100-year old wood desk. It knew it was going to be a labour intensive project and I wanted my work to last, so was extra cautious about my preparation and making sure that I followed the directions on the paint cans I used to the letter. I even went the extra mile of applying two coats of stain blocking primer underneath my chalked paint, despite the fact that Rustoleum says that primers are unnecessary when using this particular paint. I worked for three days and it was looking great-- until I added this matte clear topcoat. Within 30 minutes of applying my first coat, I was slowly watching my newly white desk turn orange. I called Rustoleum the next morning; they told me that this is a KNOWN ISSUE with this paint, and that when using the clear top coat on light chalked paint colours, you need to let the paint cure for 7 days before applying the top coat to avoid this sort of colour change. The infuriating thing was that despite Rustoleum knowing that this is an issue, they DO NOT MENTION IT ANYWHERE-- not in directions on the can, or in the FAQs on their website. The only way you can know this is a problem is by experiencing it for yourself, right at the end of your project. In the end, I had to start again; strip off all the chalked paint, re-prime, re-paint, re-seal. It took four extra days. I used Valspar paint this time and the finish has turned out beautifully, top coat included. Lowe's accepted my return when I took the chalked paint and matte clear top coat back, but I will never use this product, or Rustoleum paints, again.
