Painting cast iron sink?

Posted by zeitgast (My Page) on

We are putting in a trough sink in the kids bathroom at our beach shack. We chose the cast iron Kohler Brockway which comes with a black underside.

I've seen lots of great painted ones on the web (see link below) and was wondering if anyone has any experience painting cast iron sinks or tubs. I've heard that oil-based paints work well and also heard that powder coating works. Any tips/advice would be much appreciated.

Here is a link that might be useful: Painted Brockway sink

Very cute sink. Call Kohler. They have always been helpful when I've had questions about their products. Otherwise I have no experience with painting cast iron. Years ago I lived in a house that had the outside of the claw foot tub painted.

Good idea thx

Good idea enduring. I just notice they have some pictures of painted Brockways on their website. Thx

RE: Painting cast iron sink?

You are very welcome :) I bet there is some paint that is specially useful for these conditions. I would think that the paint would have to tolerate quick temp changes. Epoxy paint???

zeitgast, please post the answers you find, as well as your results. My bathroom with a Brockway is a year or more in the future, but I am deep into planning already. I can't wait to see yours!
