Step 1 Prepare for Painting
As with any paint job, you'll need to cover your surrounding area in a drop cloth and cover any surfaces you don't want to get paint on. Then, remove any hardware and hinges from your furniture. Finally, remove all drawers and paint them separately. This will allow you to get a nice, even paint job on all items. Sanding and priming aren't necessary with chalk paint but sanding glossy surfaces down before you paint is recommended for the best finish.
