Well that depends on what paint you can get for free

I have a daughter due in the next couple weeks. I 've been working on my soda making skills for the last 8 1/2 months.

I hope she's as interested as yours

If you're thinking about painting (I am a steelworker with much painting/coatings experience) and want something that will look good, I have a few suggestions.

You look like you have a pretty extensive brewery so if you're willing to spend a little money, a two part epoxy paint will cure like steel and thus be really easy to clean up and will withstand a tremendous beating. Since you're in the states, I would suggest Sherwin Williams Duraplate-235. It will run you around $100 for both parts of the paint.

Another good coating would be a High-Solids polyurethane (again a two part mixture) It cures like a rubbery plastic but is easy to clean and would probably serve the purpose well.

But if you're like me and don't want to spend $100, an Industrial Alkyd Enamel would do the trick (I think its like $20-$30 for a gallon) just make sure go give it a long time to cure.

Also I would recommend a roller versus a brush for the above three, it will come out thicker on the particle board and will last longer, plus it will look better.

Any ideas on colors?? I was thinking Grey, possibly white. I'm concerned about heat reflection, etc. I think painting it would look nicer, and would be more sanitary.
I used a nice Colonial Maple stain that turned out sexy as all hell! I topped it with three coats of clear polyurethane.

Yep. That pic raised my BP 20 points. Maybe I'm a little paranoid, but I won't let my 4 yr old w/in 4 feet of a kettle unless I've got a grip on her.

Nah... Shop for beige tile on clearance and you do the whole thing done for under 50 bucks.
