How do I paint wicker furniture? I have a huge set that my boyfriend bought me for Mother's Day. I love it! It is vintage wicker. I'm not even sure if I should paint it. Thanks!

I have sprayed 3 different sets of wicker I have found curbside. I use a wire brush to scrape the chippy paint if need be and then I spray paint white. I always use Rustoleum or Krylon spray. It always works well!

If it's vintage and in really good shape I think I'd be tempted just to clean it well and then clearcoat it. I'm into the shabby chic style, tho, and something that looks shiny and new just doesn't really appeal to me. If you do decide to paint it, go with several thin sprayed on coats.

I have just changed the colors in my bathroom and want to paint my wicker over the toilet shelf and wicker wastebasket to match. I am not certain what color to use either. The shower curtain is leopard and I just bought a nice tan rug and two chocolate brown reversible bath mats. I was thinking tan or beige? I would like to make the wicker look old and wanted to know if any one can tell me how to do this.

Thanks,

Use the antiquing method. Buy a light, warm shade of tan and then a darker shade, about like black coffee. Paint the piece with the light shade and let it stand as long as the directions on the can say. It should be thoroughly dry. Then put on the darker shade, covering well, and wipe the wicker with old tee shirts or about a zillion paper towels while the paint is wet. You might want to do just part of the piece at a time so the brown paint won't have a chance to dry. The dark paint will stay in the nooks and crannies, just like dirt does on old wicker pieces. You can take off as much as you like. When it is thoroughly dry, cover with one or two coats of polyurethane -- the clear stuff -- and let it cure for a day or two. You will have a long lasting finish. Have fun!

I have some dark green, weather-resistant "wicker" chairs that I would like to spray paint another color. Because of their protective coating I am wondering whether or not they can be painted, and with what type of paint? Thank you in advance for your input!

I have just used the new spray paint for plastic (I tried Rustoleum brand) and I am very pleased with the results.

It is also available in hammered metallics & textured finishes, very cool, and it's durable enough for outdoor use. (04/24/2007)

I'd recommend Krylov Fusion spray paint for plastic. It can be used on "plastics, PVC, hard vinyl, ceramic, glass, tile, wood, metal, and wicker", according to what it says on the can. I've used it on wood, plastic, and ceramic tile, and I am pleased with the results. (04/25/2007)

I recommend Krylon Fusion as well. Last summer my husband spray painted our resin patio set and a smaller table from white to a pretty sand color. It cost us $25 in paint to have what looks like new patio furniture! (04/25/2007)

You could also try "adhesion promoter" in the automotive spray paint section at WalMart. (04/26/2007)
