Question

I wonder if anyone has tried painting a fiberglass sink? Or knows of someone who did? I'd like to try but what paint would I use? Epoxy? Exterior? Polyurethane?

The sink isn't used very much - it's in the laundry room but is stained and I would like to brighten it up a bit.

If you want it to stay you will have to use a fiberglass refinishing kit.It comes with an etching prep and a 2 part epoxy.Be sure you get one for fiberglass,not ceramic.

Thanks for the reply. However, it sounds more expensive than it's worth! Is there a less expensive way if I'm not too particular about how long it lasts? If not we'll probably just buy a new sink.

The kit should be about $15 or so and is fairly simple to do.You will have to weigh the cost of the kit and your time.No common paint will bond long enough to justify doing.

Fifteen doesn't sound so bad. I'll have a look for the kit. Thanks!
