Toxicity is not an issue. The bees might have a problem with propolis over the paint. If they cannot control funguses, bacteria, etc. with propolis you might have trouble. Humidity control has been mentioned in some of the beekeeping books as a reason not to paint the inside. Personally, I would not paint the inside of my kitchenware or my food factories called beehives.

It's cured (no off-gasing) and free. A lot of people would use that.
