My name is Christine and I work in the paint department at The Home Depot.
There is a product, exclusive to The Home Depot, by Glidden that will work well for you. It is an oil- based, gel paint. It is called "Trim and Door" but I have been recommending it to people painting furniture and they have had great success with it. It leaves an ultra high gloss finish.
Here is a link discussing this product: http://community.homedepot.com/t5/Wh...ight/true#M188
