    You can use interior or exterior paint, or stains, or really anything. Let it dry out and air out and don't worry about it.

    Probably not. But don't use oil based. Fumes are horribile and take forever to go away.

    either Prime then paint (I used exterior high gloss for easier scrubbing)
    Or seal with poly
    let dry adequately and air it out! Sounds cute! Post a pic when you are done.

    I think any paint is ok. Can't get lead based paint anymore. As others said, let it dry and air out well, that's all.[​IMG]

    The more glossy the paint the easier it is to clean the poop stains off!
