This is a photo straight from the can although in real life it's a deeper blue.
Here's a look at the sample from the website.
And here's a completely different colour you can achieve by mixing 8 parts white to one part colour above.
In case you've missed the chalk paint phenomenon here are a few reasons to love it. It's the best "lazy person" paint in the world as it doesn't require sanding, prepping or priming. It only needs one coat of paint that is applied directly on top of your piece and a wax finish (or any other sealer). It has extremely low VOCs so you can use it indoors. Apparently it can be used outdoors although I have yet to test that theory. It is a super versatile paint and can act like a wash by watering it down or an impasto by leaving the lid off to let it thicken. How awesome is that? The one thing it isn't is a chalkboard paint.
Here's what I'll be painting and I'm going to get at it right away although you may not see the "after" photo until I'm settled in the new house.
