Hi Ellen! Here are some ideas and information that can be of great help to you on your project!
All you need is how other Hometalkers did it. The only site you need.
Clean them well, sand them if they're shiny. Chalk paint is one of the easiest paints to use on furniture. Apply smooth coats. Then apply polycrylic on top to protect the paint.
There are two types of paint that will work on that, without any prep work other than cleaning it.
