Question
Hello Eileen once again...

I am a start-up furniture manufacturer. I wanted to know how can I paint Mango wood furniture?

I know MDF takes paint very well but not sure how does Mango wood look finished with paint. Can I get glossy paint on mango wood furniture?
 
Any advise?

Answer
Hello again Sanjay
Hope things are going well.
We are not familiar with mango wood in Canada, however wood is wood so it should be no different than any other for painting.
The wood must be primed as you know. Then select a "high gloss" paint.
Two coats should be fine with a light sanding between coats.
I hope I understand this question correctly. If not get back to me.
Regards
Eileen

Hi..I can answer most questions about the repairing,stripping and refinishing of all your old furniture and wood items(the things we call antiques)I can give advice about what to buy/avoid at auctions/flea markets. I do not give appraisals on antiques.

Experience

I have been refinishing antiques for the past 30yrs. While I have taken several courses over the years,I have found that "hands on" learning is the best teacher. Perhaps I can help you avoid some of the mistakes I made while learning.
