How to repaint sink

I had a minor disaster in the bathroom lavatory sink in my Everest, when the Damp Rid bucket I had in there over the winter got wet, overflowed into the sink and damaged the finish. It now looks like camouflage (yuk). I think I should be able to paint it, but I don't know what kind of paint I should use. Has anyone done this successfully?

Will the paint Krylon makes for plastic be durable enough for the sink or do I need something more specifically designed for a sink/shower?

Another thought, would the Gianni countertop refinishing product be durable enough? I might be able to get close to the original color/finish with that product.

Pearlie, coming from someone with 37 years in commercial/industrial painting an blasting I can only tell you one thing: Go to Sherwin-Williams or Devoe or Porter Paint and ask to speak to the manager. You are not to go by what is said by the 19 year-old pushing paint behind the counter. You will need to know what the surface is comprised of AND you will want to tell them that the surface will have Comet cleanser used on it. It is what they do for a living. Home Depot and Lowes wasn't on my list you will notice.

That's what I suggest too. It'll be a permanent fix. Relatively easy job too. Who knows how the sink will look after new paint is applied.

I just did a random.search on trekwood.com for a Cougar lavatory sink. $79 is reasonable for a small oval sink. You may have to dig deeper as sink dimensions are all over the place.

You can have a complete sink, faucet and drain "delivered to your house in 2 days" from Amazon for $48.95.

I wouldn't consider repainting a plastic sink in an RV. Just the price of a quart of paint will probably be more expensive than a new sink. Yeah, I know, but in this day of "disposable stuff" .....

We also have an Everest. We've replaced the kitchen sink - a drop-in - three times. My wife doesn't like stainless steel.

When the Everest went out of production we just went to Montana dealers. Browsed several units until we found a sink that would work. Same with the bathroom sinks which we have changed twice. Some dealers are more agreeable than others. The last one we got was from Tom Johnson. They had it drop shipped from the factory directly to our location at the time.
