Can I spray paint my plastic bathroom sink?

I have a very worn plastic sink in my bathroom that has several gouges and burn marks and at time is really an eyesore. I was wanting to use the krylon metallic or hammered paint but I wasn’t sure how it would look or how durable it would be. I am welcome to all repsonses

    I did that about seventeen years ago because mine was awful too. I didn’t really think it would last, but it was such a nice change, I didn’t care. First, I cleaned it really well and let it completely dry. Then I taped off the areas I didn’t want painted. I applied several coats, letting it dry very well between them. Then I applied a couple of coats of clear lacquer.
    Much to my surprise, it still looks great.

    If it is a plastic sink then metalic /hammered paint will not hold, even with a primer. Krylon does make a spray paint for "plastic" products. It has special polymer resin that makes it bond to the plastic better.

    Yes look in the paint section and they make special paint now for plastic. Follow the instructions on the can on how to prep the area and how to paint. If this is followed you will end up with a nice looking job. Take our time good luck.

    By the time you clean it and dismantle it(get the chrome off) and prep it properly…for a temporary finish – it ain’t worth the time or money. There are plenty of discounted priced units with chips in the corner…if you trying to save a buck. Otherwise there is enough people doing reno’s that are throwing out perfectly good sinks.
    You need an epoxy type paint(the least of what you can use) or a baked on enamel finish. It just ain’t worth it. Get a steel one. They look ceramic with various colors.
    Again too, it depends what you use the sink for…washing automotive parts…then stainless steel is the answer.
