How do you paint IKEA plastic furniture?

IKEA Trones are simple to paint. Most people prefer to use spray paints. You need to prime them first before adding a couple of coats of your final spray paint finish. If you want to do a more thorough job, i would recommend that you ‘key’ it first which gives it a better surface to hold the paint. This is simply giving the surface a light sandpapering before you prime it.
