I inherited an ugly plastic patio table, you know, one of those round ones.  Here's the deal, I made these cute benches out of wood - stained cherry- that go all around my 13' x 9' fantastic patio, but I needed a table.  This one is a a round shape and might work well, if I do it right - and hey, the price is right !
I just hate that it's white and cheap plastic... totally looks silly with my very natural and rugged looking benches. 
The problem is that I need a paint that can actually cling to plastic... is there such a thing???  Huh
Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks Smiley

Yes, Krylon makes a spray paint specifically for plastic.

The Krylon is great. I did an entire set of chairs last summer. I liked it so much that I also did a bunch of different colored plastic flower posts to match. They all turned out great and it was really easy.
