Answer for Elastomeric paint instead of shelf paper.

I agree with previous respondent…too rubbery and soft for replacing shelf paper.

Answer for Elastomeric paint instead of shelf paper.

Painting the inside surfaces of drawers is a good alternative to shelf paper. I wouldn't use elastomeric but a semi-gloss paint instead.

1) Elastomeric paint still requires the drawer bottoms be primed before painting, this is the same as any paint.

2) It will be tough to find any elastomeric paint in anything other than 5 gallon buckets. This is a coating that is normally sold to pro's for complete jobs.

3) Elastomeric paint doesn't have a very shiny appearance when dry, it's more like eggshell or satin. This might make it difficult to clean.

Overall using shelf paper is probably easier to do. But, if you still want paint use a good acrylic semi-gloss.
