How To Paint Plastic Furniture & A Makeover

How to paint plastic furniture-
Another sneak peek of our patio space! I know, I’m such a tease. It happens. Anyways in the last post about the outdoor sofa makeover, I talked about how we wanted to do this patio makeover on a budget. Enter ugly beat up plastic chairs that I found at a local thrift store for a few measly dollars. I knew with a little TLC & some spray paint that these babies would be as good as new & be a great addition to our patio makeover. And actually these chairs are pretty heavy & are very sturdy so it was a great deal. I hope this post makes you think twice about passing up some ugly plastic furniture at your local thrift store or inspires you to paint some plastic furniture of your own!

So you have a not so pretty plastic piece of furniture. It’s so easy to give it a makeover that it would be a sin not to make it pretty!

1- wash the entire surface of the plastic piece of furniture. I like using windex or vinegar and water to clean with. I feel like it gets all of the dirts & oils completely off the surface which will allow the paint to adhere better to the plastic.

2- You can choose to prime if you want to. I don’t prime when painting plastic. One, because I’m lazy & I don’t feel like it’s necessary. I have never had a problem with paint coming off of my plastic pieces when I don’t prime. Plastic is an absorbent material and any kind of spray paint works very well in my opinion. But, if you do want to prime, you can use kilz or rust-oleums oil based primers for extra security that your paint will last & go on smooth. My favorite spray paint to use is Rust-oleum (and no this post is not sponsored, but hey what’s up rust-oleum! I like your product!) I feel like for plastic and outdoor pieces in general it’s very durable and long lasting. I especially love the hammered textured series because it hides flaws & really leaves no room for error.

3.Your done. I’m not kidding. That’s it. Let your piece dry until it’s out in the weather conditions, but really now you have a beautiful “new” piece of furniture that you can be proud of and that will make your outdoor space look like a whole new area!
