He recommends Duplicolor gloss black interior paint so sart with that. The wood ha a clear coat so you will have to sand it down before painting. Start with a rough grit and then work into finer grits. Then follow instructions on the paint. However, PRACTICE first!!! Always always practice on something else instead. Replacing the trim is expensive! Doing it right isn't

The comment I saw about orange was the "orange peel effect". See link: http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orange_peel_(effect)

Here is a wood trim DIY I found on BFc:
