What paint do you use to paint over a apoxy paint on your bathroom vanity?
They have special epoxy kits to do this! Visit Sherwin Williams or check your local home improvement stores. Usually the kit comes with the base and the activator in two separate pint cans that you will mix together. Don't try anything other than epoxy for porcelain and similar surfaces, because anything else won't work!

Answer . \nMelamine paint is very expensive as you know and they do come in colors. You don't have to use Melamine and oil based paint is just as good (although a little s…melly.) Melamine smells terrible anyway. Oil based should be used (be sure if there is any paint in your bathroom already that it's oil based and not latex. If latex, then you have some sanding to do. You sand to rough up the surface. It's also good to put a white primer on the walls after sanding so you oil base will stay on properly. Oil base and Melamine are used because of the dampness of the bathroom and usually this is also used in kitchens. My husband only paints the tub surround with Melamine and the rest of the white woodwork with oil based paint. \n. \nMarcy
Any reputable paint retailer can help you with this question. Most manufactures make a good quality latex paint specifically for kitchen and baths, many of these conta…in a mildew inhibiting agent. If you are painting in an old house, check with your retailer for the correct primer/undercoat. If this is new construction, take the time to do it right and apply the appropriate primer first.
Painting your bathroom depends on personal preference, and you can paint it whatever colour you like. I tend to stick with a light blue or cream above my tiles. You can also d…ecorate your bathroom with quality accessories.
You can, eggshell paint is a low-luster paint, meaning that the surface is less shiny, and therefore less hard than other higher gloss paints. In an en-suite bathroom, or a… powder room eggshell paint can be both esthetically pleasing and wipe-able. It will not, however be scrub-able, you need a higher gloss factor to be able to repeatedly wash (and sometimes scrub) a paint. In a high traffic bathroom, one that sees multiple showers per day, or one that sees children (and their finger/hand prints) it is more advisable to use a higher gloss factor in the paint. Many paint manufacturers make paints specifically designed for use in bathrooms and kitchens. They are higher gloss (pearl, satin, semi-gloss) and have a chemical in them which is designed to reduce mold and mildew. Even in areas where humidity is not as big a factor as it is in some places, this added feature can be a good thing.
Any paint will adhere to lead based paint and seal it. Latex is the easiest. The lead will not bleed through and is not harmful as long as it is not flaking off. It is only ha…rmful if a child chews on it and swallows it.
you can use a flat paint in a bathroom if there is no moisture problem. the biggest problem in bathrooms is moisture from showers causing mildew on ceil…ings and walls that leads to paint falling off then the drywall or plaster walls themselves failing. adequate ventilation is necessary for any coating to stand up. where there is adequate ventilation almost any coating will do. Zinsser Perma White self-priming bathroom paint is an awesome water based product made specifically for bathroom ceilings and walls and can be tinted. Self priming means you just paint right over the existing surface. Other major manufacturers like Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams also have a great water based bathroom paint. Tell the clerk you want a specialty bathroom paint and he or she will steer you to the right product. old timers like me worried about moisture in a bath will sometimes still coat walls and ceilings with an oil enamel, with a sheen. oil paints in a bath really resist mildew and mold better than anything. modern bathrooms with great ventilating fans, high ceilings, plenty of square footage to dissipate moisture can be painted with almost anything. kane painting, semass
depends on your color scheme. A light color usually goes well. Use blue
blue, light orange,beige, light green, a light color that matches with your furniture in there a light color
Yes, there is no problem in using latex in a bathroom. Oil based paint would hold up longer if the walls are being scrubbed down, but it's more difficult to work with, c…osts more and smells worse.
I use enamel semi-gloss or gloss.
No, not a good idea. It does not work well with steam and water vapours.
I would say black would pop that white color beautifully. The black would be a great contrast to the clean fresh white color. Then go with a black and white towel and rug set …to finish off the look.
Many home centers sell a two part epoxy kit that you can use to paint ceramic bathroom tiles, but they are in a fairly limited selection. If you'd prefer a different color, go… to a paint store and they can mix a two part polyurthane or epoxy in nearly any color you would want. You can also use a bonding primer, like XIM, for the first coat, then cover that with a durable oil based paint if you prefer to not deal with a two part coating. It isn't as durable, but can easily be touched up and should be less expensive.
you can paint it with semi gross
If the gloss is enamel, or even a very shiny gloss latex, it will not adhere. As it gets really dry it will flake off.
I would use a gloss latex.
Choosing colours for rooms is a matter of choice. However, there are some suggestions that will help for getting a better environment. Bathrooms need to be a relaxing place an…d colours such as white, pale pink and pale blue would be great.
