    I painted an entire dining set that was dated. It came out beautiful - no sanding prior to putting the chalk paint on.

    Yes, you can. It does not completely hide the grain (as they will tell you), but it is a beautiful look. We do this in our business. Please clean your cabinets well first. Then sand them with an electric sander. Then wipe them down with white rubbing alcohol. Paint with the grain. Let each coat dry overnight. Use as many coats as needed to hide color underneath.
    IF you want a shinier surface, then chalk paint is not for you. I don't recommend the wax sealers, even though they say they are acrylic sealers.
