How to paint a bathroom sink.
Can i paint my sink.
Stainless steel and acrylic sinks can be painted at home.
The sink paint takes 15 minutes to dry to the touch but will take 3 days to fully cure.
Remove all hardware and clean the sink.
Shake it well hold the can 10 16 away from the sink and spray in a steady back and forth motion.
Sand the entire sink with medium grit sandpaper or sand.
Use sandpaper to scuff the sink and acetone to remove gloss.
Use caution with acetone.
I used a box cutter to remove the caulking around my sink and then wiped clean any sticky residue with rubbing alcohol.
Apply 2 3 light coats letting each one dry in between for 15 minutes.
Apply a thin coat of paint to the sink using a natural bristle paintbrush.
You can re caulk the area once the countertops are painted and dried.
Prime and paint your desired color.
The painting was actually pretty easy but these steps take time.
Remember to clean the sides and bottom of the sink if you plan to paint those areas.
Rinse the entire sink with water and dry with a towel.
The second coat needs to be applied 2 4 hours after the initial coat.
A painted bathroom sink was a bit more tricky but still not terrible.
First remove all the old caulk.
First i used the fine bristled brush to cut in around the edges of the counter.
If more than 4 hours have passed allow the paint to cure for 72 hours before applying the second coat.
Spray paint your kitchen sink two part epoxy and urethane finishes are definitely hard enough to finish a sink but these finishes really should be sprayed and for that you need to rent spray equipment.
It is possible to paint a kitchen sink to give it a refresh.
This step allowed me to paint as closely to the sink as possible around and under any lips or seams.
For the sink basin i applied in a circular pattern starting at the top rim and proceeding down to the drain.
Use long smooth strokes and keep the paint flowing in one direction.
A great alternative is to use automotive paint which comes in aerosol cans.
I think i spent about 1 1 2 hours cleaning the sink before i even started painting.
The most important thing about painting a bathroom sink is the prep work.
