    Hi, I have an old dining table which I am wanting to paint black with a high gloss finish. It is already covered in antique white Craig and Rose eggshell. I was wondering what the best method to do this would be either layering up a gloss paint or varnishing over a paint. I understand i'd have to do a lot of prep ie sanding between coats. Any advice on method and products would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Just buy a gloss black table, you will never manage to make it look good.
