Hello. Is this an indoor outdoor project..... wall or other surface? More details might be helpful. Could you possibly post a photograph to better see your situation and area of damage? Having a visual might be best guidance to a help find the best suggestions or potential solution to best know what you are dealing with.
Generally proper prep is important for any successful paint job. Your refurbishment might include sanding priming and repainting.
Hard work is required. Where is the chipping paint?
Scraping off the flakes with a paint scraper will definitely be the cheapest way to go. Strippers can get expensive, especially if you’re going to paint a large area. Buy a nice, wide one so the job will go faster.
Smooth sand the chips and touch up the paint would be the least expensive way but you will be able to see the texture where it has chipped.
Here's some info. Fairly inexpensive and takes more time than money......

Hi! It depends on what is chipping. It's best to remove as much as you can and sand to have a good outcome. Outside, I usually power wash. Inside, for furniture or molding, I strip, scrape and sand until I have a smooth surface. Good luck and stay safe!
I agree, it depends on what is chipping...as chipped furniture will be much different than a chipped wall or a chipped metal chaise. In general though, scrape, sand and repaint is the way to go. And if you can use spray paint to repaint, that's quickest.
I agree that most of the time scrap off as much as possible first, then sand. However, if it's something outside that is an outdoor wood, I'd pressure wash it.
Chip what is coming off then sand down and left over then paint it
Hi Chinetha: The best thing is to remove the chipping paint and repaint the area. What I use is one of those metal brushes used for a bar=b-que grill. They are great for removing stuff like paint and rust. But, don't use it on your grill as you may have some of the metal bristles stick to the grill and then go into your food and then you go to the hospital :( You can get that is mis-tinted cheaply at paint or hardware stores. Or, you can ask for it on Freecycle.org or Trashnothing.com, and it's free if anyone has any.
