Cement Laundry Tub _ Paintable?

Hey guys, I just finished painting my laundry room. Everything turned out great, but now I have this ugly looking concrete double laundry sink. Very oldschool.

Could I paint this? What could I use on the inside of the tub? I was thinking there must be something I would coat the inside with, that will withstand the soap and water from the laundry machine.

A friend told me to buy a can of truck bedliner, prep the tub and spray it on. I'm just not sure.

Any ideas?

Maybe look into one of those epoxy garage floor painting kits? I know Rustoleum makes one that includes everything you need.

Check your local paint stores for water based pure acrylic latex paint. This is the type used for waterproofing concrete.
If you have never made a mistake, you haven't done much.
