Paint

what kind of paint can i use on a birch table that will be 6" from a radiator?

I'm having a console made out of birch wood that will sit 6" from a radiator. Do I need special heat-resistant paint? Or is regular interior paint okay (latex is all that's available in California)?

jeninsf,

 

The heat from a radiator several inches away should not adversely affect a painted cabinet, especially one painted with acrylic paint. Acrylics latex an water based lacquers are not subject to the yellowing of alkyd oil enamels.

 

Hope this has helped.
