I want to know what is the best type of paint to a plastic shelving unit and a metal shelving unit …..?

Shelving Unit

mslovesrain asks:

I plan to paint both shelving units white to match my decor and the metal shelving unit is gray and the plastic one has black shelves and gray supports. I really don’t want to do a primer and I need to know what type of brush to paint with so I won’t have visible brush strokes. Detailed answers will be greatly appreciated and will obviously get 10 points for best answer 🙂

  1. If you don’t want visible brush strokes, your best bet is to spray them. There is a spray paint called Krylon Fusion that works great. It’s specially designed for painting plastic, but, it will work on your metal shelf as well.
