    I spray painted mine outside on some cardboard to protect the lawn and sidewalk. Walmart sells special paint made for metal or plastic or wood. It is very reasonable and not bad, just be sure to be outside or in a well ventilated room.

    Lightly sand to remove any gloss. Spray paint with metal paint. Several likght coats will give you a smooth finish.

    Agree with above Rustoleum spray paint is awesome. Be careful to apply light coats from a proper distance to prevent drips/ runs. I often use the accessory spray attachment.
