    Rustoleum 2X spray paint for plastic or Krylon Fusion. Several light coats will give you a smooth finish.

    I like Krylon Fusion spray paint. It's sold at all the home improvement stores.

    I would clean it really well and then use a bonding primer that is made to adhere to resin before painting.

    Hello! Please consider using plastic friendly spray paint -this product does an awesome job.

    You may want to decide if you want to satin finish or a gloss finish ( or metallic) both might be available in a wide selection of colors.

    A few years ago I spray painted hand-me-down faded mismatched adirondak plastic chairs to make a more cohesive seating and the plastic friendly spray paint worked fine, it was rewarding to rescue and rehab the faded tired chairs.

    The before and after was a remarkable accomplishment.

    Rustoleum recommendations


    Always work in a well-ventilated area. Cover the floor and nearby items with a drop cloth. Lightly scuff any glossy surfaces and wipe clean with a lint-free cloth. Use Painter’s tape to hide any surfaces you don’t want to paint.


    Using slow, back-and-forth motions, spray paint each item with several light coats of spray paint, making sure to overlap each stroke slightly. Apply 2-3 coats of spray paint, waiting a few minutes in between each coat.


    Let spray paint dry for approximately 1 hour before handling.

    Tip: Use of 2X Ultra Cover Primer in White provides better paint coverage and color.
