I have a metal and glass tv stand that is similar to this one and I'm wondering if I would be able to spray paint the metal part of it? I hate how industrial it looks and would like to jazz it up a bit since a new tv stand is not in my budget right now. How would I go about it? Just spray the stuff on or prep it somehow? Will it chip off? TIA!

If the paint on there is in good condition, then you should be able to sand it a bit to rough it up to give the new paint something to stick to and just spray new paint on. If it is an older paint job and has any rust on it, then spray it with Ospho first. Follow the directions on the bottle for application, etc. That will stop all the rust. Then pain with either a primer or your paint of choice.

Use the Krylon or Rustoleum spray paint for plastic or metal. All you have to do is make sure it's clean before you spray it on and then make sure you leave it long enough to fully cure before any rough handling of it.

When faced with a painting dilemma, you can visit a paint store and explain what you want to do. Someone there will most likely be able to advise you. I do think you should be able to spray paint the metal trim on your unit.

Directions for application will be on the spray can.
