Q: I'm thinking of hacking a toy kitchen for my daughter -- some of the colors/finishes just aren't my style. My question for the DIY crowd is - what kind of paint should I use that is safe for my family?

Editor: Truthfully, I don't know much about paint. If you plan to use interior paint, look for low VOC (volatile organic compounds) options. I'm not sure what your options are for craft paint if you're only using small amounts. Readers, can you help?
