    Both Rustoleum and Krylon make a plastic approved spray paint. There maybe other manufacturers. I’ve used it to spray some outdoor plastic Adirondack chairs they have lasted a few years and recently have some chipping started. But overall it’s a great product available in many desirable colors.

    There are so many paints available now. You can find several brands that specifically say they are for outdoor and for plastic painting. I found several at Walmart alone. If you want an upgrade paint for the same, try your local paint store, but I found the Walmart brands were very good for plastic!

    I just used cheap Walmart paint. The key was a good prep job. This summer I sanded all the chairs. It took several days to do all of them (8). Followed that by rinsing them off and let them sit outside overnight. Then applied several light coats of spray paint. I learned quickly to apply light coats of paint after having several runs on my first chair. But the key to success seemed to be sanding them first.
