    There is a certain paint/spray paint that is meant for plastic, you can get t at any hardware/paint store.
    Just make sure you do not spray against the wind when using spray paint. And it is better to do a few thin layers rather than one thick layer

    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.

    PREPARE:
    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.

    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.

    FINISH:
    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.
