      I think so it has a couple of rust stains on the arms already.

    Use spray paint made for plastic, but he's right, it will eventually peel.

    Ok even if it does eventually peel...so,what ...gives it some character. I bought a 4 piece set back in Peachtree City, Georgia back in 2002. It was white. I moved to Richmond, Canada so now time for a beige color. I tired of the white color spray painted with plastic paint. It now is in Washington State and some of the beige has peeled and u can see the white...I love it.

    Funny how this question came up today as I have been pondering over a new color...with a beautiful lakeview, the color of something in the blue family comes to mind.

    For me normally I would be trying to achieve this peeled off paint look......

    Maybe try to prime it first, then use a paint made for sealing rubber like boat paint or an engine/motor paint, spray or brush on. It looks like the furniture won't be in the elements so that should help. Good luck ,hope you find a solution!

    No priming, no sanding, no boat paint or auto paint. Use Krylon fusion spray paint. Bonds to plastic/rubber on a molecular level.
