Spray paint made to bond to plastic. About 1 can per chair. just go for the colors you love. Spray each chair with a thin coat of spray paint. Hold the can about 10 inches from the surface of the adirondack chair and keep the can moving while you spray. Don’t worry about full coverage during this first coat of paint. It may be best to start with the bottom side of the chair to get your rhythm down even though I didn’t even paint the bottom of ours. Second coat: I let the first coat dry for about 30 minutes before spraying my second coat. Final inspection: You may have a few spots here and there to touch up. Get down and crawl around your chair and look at it from all angles to make sure all visible parts are painted…and to make your neighbor, who happens to peek over the fence to say hi during this step, think that you are crazy. let them dry for the remainder of a warm afternoon and then waited a few days before anyone sat on them to be safe.
