    If you use chalk paint, you don't even need to sand at all. Just clean it well and paint.

    Totally agree! With no more prep work than a whick wipe-down with diluted vinegar and water, I painted a dark walnut night table with 3 coats of chalk paint (I prefer that to one heavy coat), applied a white floor wax to it, and it looks and feels so soft and silky....:)

    Check out Unicorn Spit...it is a stain and glaze that can be applied to wood/metal/glass/plastic/cloth...it is amazing! I have made coasters, painted planters, re-done cheap florist vases and painted metal hummingbirds to put on drinking glasses. It is fun to work with and you don't really need true artistic talent. This "paint" has a jasmine scent to it...not stinky!!

    I agree with chalk paint or milk paint there are so many great colors to choose from. You should degloss before painting. ZINSSER®
    Paint Deglosser Apply a new finish within one hour of deglossing.
    A very easy redo, I have painted several pieces of furniture

    You could also do your pre-wash with TSP, then smooth with a bit of fine sandpaper to hit the highlights, and paint with any low-VOC paint. Satin or semi-gloss finish will give you the most wearability.
