Martha: some of these tutorials may help! Good luck! Have fun!
You use chalk paint just like regular paint. It will cover most anything requires little or no prep work. Unless you are painting on a glossy surface you often don't even need to sand. Just go for it. The first coat always looks doubtful. The second coat... you are hooked. Nothing to it. You can finish with wax, antique the corners, sand edges to look aged or leave as it.
