Waiting to paint this...

In anticipation of my cast being removed this Friday, I could not resist browsing eBay recently for something to paint.  Yesterday I scored this little cabinet below. I can't pick it up till next week (as I haven't been able to drive with my broken arm).  I'm looking forward to trying out a homemade version of chalk paint on it.  I'll let you know how I get on next week.

please excuse the bad eBay photo

I'm sure my husband will wonder why I needed to buy something when I still have our bedside tables, a couple of doors and some chairs to paint, but I know you bloggers will understand....

Hope you are all having a good week.

    Would you lightly sand a piece such as this before priming and painting?
