      @Linda oh geez, I did this awhile back! I think I just used wall paint. I did sand the plastic first and added a clear coat, and it has held up good. Spray paint would work great but I just did this on a whim and used what I had.

      I think "Rust-Oleum" brand has an "all surface" spray paint product and one for plastics as well. I do know that a "light sanding" with a high number grit for "fine" sanding, helps get rid of the "smooth" surface. This helps to keep the paint from peeling off.

      you can actually get one similar at Family Dollar for about 12.00 to 15.00 dollars.
