I just rescued an old changing table (used in the 60s). It has a tubular
metal frame and four wicker baskets that swing open. The attached top opens
out to a padded vinyl mat which is in good condition, but has some permanent
stains and is kind of ugly, white with brown flowers and swirls. I'm
repainting the baskets white since they've yellowed with age but the vinyl
top and mat are encased in a hinged metal frame and I'm not sure I can
easily take it apart to recover it. Do you think I can paint the vinyl? And
if so, with what (latex, oil, spray enamel?). Any advice welcome. Thanks.
Krylon (and Rustoleum also, I think) now makes spray cans of paint
specifically for plastic, but I don't know how flexible it would be.

following message into cyberspace:
Plastikote makes a soft vinyl paint. I used it back in the late 70's to
paint the vinyl interior of my car, including the seats. It worked
pretty good. Don't forget, the current vinyl is the same color all the
way through. The paint will just cover the top and any scratches or wear
will show the old color underneath.
