Default Safe Paint

I bought a small wooden box and drilled a 2" hole in the front and put a partition in the middle with another 2 " hole to create a two room apt. I painted the interior of the box with PlastiKote. I assume that this paint is safe. I see many of you guys talk about this paint.

I'm also painting part of the interior with Behr Premium Plus low odor, zero VOC paint. Is this paint safe? I will be covered with bedding material.

I would use PlastiKote, but the amount they shipped to me is very small. It would be very expensive to use this paint.

Plastikote is safe if it's the water based enamel not any other kind of Plastikote.
Not sure about the other paint tbh, I alway stick with . Plastikote & find one of the small pots will easily do more than one largish house with two coats.

Well, I've decided to only use the Behr paint on the exterior. Better safe than sorry. I was going to use it on the second floor. I only wanted to keep the wood dry, so I used contact paper instead. btw, Cypher, thanks for your reply.
