Paint Baseboards?

Hey All,

I have a forced hot water system with baseboards.

Some of the baseboards are rusted / ugly.

Can you paint baseboards? If so, should I use a special paint? Any special prep?

I can't imagine they get hot enough to be any kind of fire hazard but... better safe than sorry.

Paint Baseboards?

Yes, you can paint them. They get super hot, usually less then 180.
