Yes, there is such thing as spray paint for vinyl. Rust-Oleum makes it and it is actually called Fabric and Vinyl Paint although I’ve tried it on fabric and it was a FAIL! I would have to do more testing to see if it also works on fabric. But this post is about using it on a vinyl chair so let me walk you though what I did.
My project piece was this little 50's chair which was purchased for $5 at a thrift store a while back. I like the chair but not the color. As I really didn't want to reupholster it, I decided it was the perfect piece to try vinyl spray paint as an alternative to reupholstering.
This paint is fairly hard to use, at least in Florida in the summer. I think I was having problems because of the humidity and heat. The paint was drying with grayish looking dry splotchy patches. I finally had to create a small spray tent inside my house in order to get it to dry properly. It appears cooler temperatures are needed for proper drying. I won’t try this paint again until the weather cools to between 70 and 80 with low humidity.
Although the Fabric and Vinyl paint is tricky to use, I do like the results. I have two more chairs that I want to use this paint on but that will have to wait until late fall. Rust-Oleum also has this paint in a liquid form. I will have to try that to see how it compares to the spray!
