Many paints these days are formulated for use on plastics. This sculptural chair got a new lease on life when it was painted a pretty nautical blue. Just make sure if you’re painting a chair you allow PLENTY of dry time in a space that’s not too cold, too hot or too humid BEFORE you actually sit in it! And if you plan on using that chair outdoors, finish it off with a clear coat spray for extra protection.
