    Use Krylon fusion spray paint to paint the chairs. Several light coats will get you a smooth finish. You can get stencils or print free letters from many online websites. Tape the stencils where you want them, tape off any place you don't want painted. Spray paint them.

    I painted my resin Adirondak chairs a few years ago. It was nice to reunite mismatched faded hand me down chairs into cohesive seating.

    I prepped and cleaned the chairs let them dry and then used a Rustoleum plastic friendly spray paint —it has always been my favorite choice for professional results. The rustoleum spray paints often has primer and paint combined in one. The universal series has an excellent designed applicator- easy to use top spray nozzle that can operate in any angle. Ive also used the Painter's Touch 2X Ultra Cover on plastic chairs and plastic planters, great results and coverage.

    The before and after was a remarkable accomplishment.

    Do you know anyone with a silloutte or cricut? They might be able to make you a vinyl stencil for painting the LSU logo/lettering?

    Best wishes with your patio chair furniture rehab to your LSU themed colors. I hope you can find the perfect shades of yellow and purple.

    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.
