    Regular latex paint. Just make sure they are really clean. Painted many in my day.

    Hi Donna, I did a bit of research and found that you should use oil-based enamel for good adhesion. The article I read was written by a professional painting contractor who recommends this. On another site I read that you should use a paint brush designed for this exact purpose. It's shaped like a hockey stick. I hope this helps you. Good luck.

    They make a paint specifically for this. Ask the person at the paint counter

    I used a wire brush cleaned off the old paint and then spray painted them with krylon hammered metal spray paint they turned out great and completed my color scheme
