    It's your table. If you have no intentions of ever selling it, paint away. You may have to do some light sanding to make the paint stick. Mahogany is a popular wood so painting it would decrease your chances of selling it for a decent price should you ever decide to sell it. Since you say it's old, I would check to make sure it's not made by some famous furniture maker.
