Black Lacquered Bookshelves


I have a really huge vintage bookshelf that we are currently using in the playroom. I’m crossing my fingers and hoping we’ll have a place for it in the new apartment’s living room. I want to paint it just like this:

Isn’t the white detailing so unexpected and gorgeous?

    So how does one achieve that look? I've sprayed with lacquer spray paint before and never had anything look that shiny and reflective.
