Changing the color of vinyl chairs

Connie Ricke
by Connie Ricke
Has anyone had experience painting vinyl? I have two club chairs in a color that I would like to change. Is there a paint that will hold on vinyl? The chairs do not receive a lot of use or abuse and the seat would be fabric.

    Annie Sloan's chalk paint is advertised as a paint that adheres to any surface including fabric

    I have used vinyl spray paint on a bike seat. It worked very well so far. It even sits out all year and still is not a problem. I'm sure it would work on a seat inside even better! I think I bought the paint (several years ago) at Home Depot. Check several places online first to see who carries it.

    I used Krylon plastic fusion paint on outdoor vinyl cushions in April. This is almost September and they still look like new. They did not fade or crack and I left them outside the entire time.

    Here's a link to a woman that painted her leather furniture. I don't know why it wouldn't work on vinyl.

    Like Nancy in Detroit, I used Krylon Plastic Fusion paint. Did a set of vinyl kitchen chairs and they held up wonderfully! No chipping, no cracking. And I did pink paint over the original deep brown vinyl!

    I have a vinyl chair that I got for free from a nursing home that was updating. I painted it all over in craft paint. Its still perfect today like 10 years later

    I don’t know a thing about painting vinyl. What I do know isthat this color is hot right now. And I love the chair style, too. So I wouldn’tchange the chairs, I’d build a room around them. I recently redid my livingroom in blue and green with turquoise accents and this chair color is my popcolor. I love it!! Those chairs would so make my living room shine! Try workingwith them!! Good luck!

    I love that chair too I would not try to paint it.If you do not like it sell it I am sure some one would love it too because that color and style is like someone said that color is hot right now. GOOD LUCK. DHALL

    car stores have spray paint made for painting vinyl- for car seat restoration. just google it- you will find a lot of vinyl spray paint. The big box home improvement stores also have spray paint made to adhere to plastics, but I had good luck with the car product.
