How to paint plastic baseboard moulding

raj555000February 10, 2012

I just got plastic baseboard moulding installed in the finished basement. It looks off white and different from the painted wood trim for doors and closets, so I want to get it painted with the same color. The product description on the Home Depot website says that it is paintable. Can I paint it directly or do I need to prime it first? Also, what kind of paint should I use?

See below for the product web link

Here is a link that might be useful: TRIMFINITY 12 ft. x 3-1/4 in. x 9/16 in. Plastic Base Moulding

I've used that, and just painted it with no priming.

Thanks, which paint did you use? Does it matter?
