Round dining room table painted in white high-gloss paint

When I first started painting, one of my dear friends told me she was looking for a large round table, and she asked me to paint it in a white high-gloss paint.  A bit scary because I had never worked with high- gloss paint, but I promised her the table.  Well, after some time I found a wonderful heavy oak dining room table on Craigslist.  I took it to my workshop and started working on it.  After the usual sanding part I only had to fill in a small area with wood filler.  For the rest, they table was in great shape.  After I primed the table with Zinsser primer I noticed it did not cover well enough so I also used some Kilz spray primer on the top.  This really works like a charm!


I chose for the paint Valspar (Lowe’s) Chef’s White.  A really nice shade of white and since I used a high gloss paint I did not follow it up with polyurethane or wax.  Not necessary, they told me at Lowe’s.

I did give the table about 3 coats.  The end result was nice and my friend loves it!
