PAINTING --------a fire surround ?

Postby vw754 » Sat Sep 13, 2008 5:20 pm

Can anyone help.......Ive got a wooden fire surround which is finished in dark brown mahogony colour.

I would like to paint it in white,my friend suggested i spray paint it.

How can i paint it white and end up with a nice shiny finish that looks like it's a genuine/original finish.

What paint/under coat do i use? Do i sand it down?

Im worried about peeling paint and overall finish
