How to refinish antique iron bed frame

I have an antique iron bed frame. The paint is chipping off and I want to repaint it with Rust-Oleum Chalked Paint. Do I need to totally remove the old paint or just sand the areas that are chipping? I don't have the physical ability to sand the whole thing. Would chemical paint stripper hurt the iron? I checked into local sandblasting services and they are too expensive. I appreciate your suggestions.
