    Probably take a couple of steps. first is to rough it up with sand paper. Another is to use a primer that works on enamel - my contractor suggested a Sherwin Williams product. Check with them. That may be the safest way, if you don't know exactly what the finish is.

    Don't know what you're painting or the kind of paint you're using, but definitely do a light sanding before you paint or it won't stick. Use 120 or higher grit paper and then wipe it with a damp cloth. Even better, use a primer before your color.

    You always have to prep. Lightly sand and use a primer. Supposedly, you do not have to do this with chalk paint, but depending upon what you are painting, it will have to be waxed.

    You can either sand or use paint deglosser and then prime before you put your finish coat on. Do not use the paint that has the primer in it.
