    I personally would put a coat, or possibly two coats of Zinsser primer on first as a base and then use my chalk paint. I've painted a few pieces of this (like my grand daughter's Bonnett Sears set of French provincial bedroom furniture) that that had that same "Formica like" top. This is what I used and it worked fine. (I might also put a coat of harder wearing sealer on top too if going to a child.)
