Do you have to sand furniture before applying chalk paint?

    HI if there is some rough spots or loose areas on the furniture you can just sand it a little otherwise you can paint right over it. Also you can put a seal chalk paint over it to. Hope this helps

    If it has any glossy appearance at all, i would lightly sand it with 150 grit sandpaper to remove the gloss. Then prime and paint. But most chalk paints don't require priming.

    It's always helpful to do a Light sanding just to help the paint adhere
