I just bought the 99 cent picture frames (see below for example, not my photo) from Ikea for my table numbers. I spray painted them and the paint is bubbling! Did any of you use these for table numbers and paint them? How did you paint them?

I’ve never done anything with those frames in particular, but from spraypainting plastic in the past, you will probably need to sand and/or prime these. Didyou buy a spray-paint specifically made for painting plastics?

I’d assume they are plastic like the regular picture frames I used from the dollar store. If so you’ll either need a spray paint specifically for plastic or use a primer first.

ohhh good call, I did not prime nor buy paint specific for plastic. Luckily I only tried one. I will revisit this with appropriate paint options. Whew, glad it is that easy of a fix. Thanks!

I spray painted those frames for our wedding. I didn’t prime, and I didn’t have problems with bubbling. I used the Krylon spray paint that said it was suitable for plastic. I would recommend spraying thing layers to avoid dripping drops.

I have used them without a primer with no problems. I suggest you also remember to use very thin coats when spray painting anything.

Make sure you aren’t spraying too close to the frame. Stay back about 12 inches and do long sweeping motions and several thin coats instead of one or two thick ones. That should help.

@GFerg: I second this. If not, you will end up with rage face in the backyard wondering how to get rid of all the drips.
