We just bought a house that had a nice wooden playset left behind. It was in rough shape and we just stained it and brought it back to life. The plastic slide with it is very unattractive as it is faded, and stained with pollen/dirt etc. Is there any way to paint the plastic slide? Any ideas of what we could do without buying a new slide for $150 would be great!

They sell a paint to go over plastic. I don't know if it is for exterior applications. I don't know if it would hold up to scratches from shoes and everything, but check at a paint store. What about just priming with a product like KILZ and then painting with exterior paint. I have never tried either so you're on your own.

OK, I answered quickly so you could make your own call. Mywife had told me she was going to paint my daughters Step 2 toy box, it also is platic. She is done now and it turned out pretty good. The paint is made by Krylon. It's called Fusion for Plastic. It says for inside and outside on all plastics. It shows a picture of a playhouse right on the front of the can. I question whether it would survive being slid on. Call Krylon and ask them. 1(800)4KRYLON You may want to give them this product and batch number from the bottom of my can. 2334/B3102/r0/NFP VOC66/1.40
Good luck again
