Love chalkpaint, but hate bleed through! What to do?

I really love the look of chalk paint. So much so that I make my own to use on furniture redo's. I mostly use white and do not sand before painting. When I go to seal the piece, I get an ugly bleed through of old stain, varnish, etc. This makes an otherwise sharp looking piece of furniture look messy. I don't like that look. I don't distress in most cases and prefer a pretty flat white in contrast to a dark or medium stain. I have attached pictures of my latest project and how bad the bleed through looks. If anyone knows of a sealant that won't allow belled through, PLEASE tell me what it is. Otherwise, I may have to just begin painting my projects with a stain blocking paint (like Kilz) before painting on my chalk paint. NOTE: Bleed through is actually much darker than in pictures...
