Want to paint my skirting black with dulux trade high gloss (oil based).

Currently, the skirting is painted white with Johnstone Aqua (water based) paint

For a proper, long lasting job, can I

1. Rub down the skirting with 240 grit.

2. Use Zinsser Cover Stain (oil based primer)

3. Finish with Dulux high gloss
