Hi everyone,

I have a pair of black plastic office chairs and i would like to change their colour to white. I was wondering if anyone could tell me if I need to sand them down before applying spray paint or not. Otherwise do they need a primer before the paint?

Thanks a lot in advance. Don’t know what to do and would like to give them a nice finished. Any help will be very much appreciated.
