Can I paint venetian blinds, or would this be crazy?

I sure would appreciate some advice on this. If they can be painted successfully, is it alright to use spray paint?

Sincere thanks.

Painting Blinds

What are they made of? Metal or plastic? If you wanted to dismantle them, spray paint would work fine on metal. If plastic, you might try Rit Dye in a strong solution.....soaking the entire thing would result in strongly colored cording and light/pastel slats....or you might consider permanant markers if you have lots of time. If you have any spare slats you might cut one up and try different products and techniques on the pieces.
Blinds are super cheap. Unless you have really large or unusually shaped windows, it would probably be worth it to replace them. I have found blinds for as little as $3.00 ea.
Good luck,
RJ
