What type of paint is advised to re-do a cherry headboard to white?

I would like to re-use a bed frame that happens to be a cherry finish.  Room however, has white furnishings, how can I re-vanp this piece of furniture to white and look decent?

Painting the bed frame is an easy solution that will save lots of money in the long run. 

 

Here are the steps:

  1. Clean the wood with a degreaser like TSP and wipe with a new damp cloth to remove any residue.
  2. Lightly sand the surface or use a liquid deglosser to prepare the surface.
  3. Prime the wood with an oil based primer like Kilz or Coverstain.
  4. Lightly sand one more time and wipe clean.
  5. Paint two coats of white semi-gloss or satin finish - that closely matches the existing furniture color.
