Looking For Cherry Wood Colored Paint

Hello. I want to paint my Rattan headboard from white to cherry finish? My headboard is Rattan and finished in a white gloss. I want to paint it to match my Cherry bedroom furniture. I can't stain it over the gloss and it would be too difficult to sand. I need a spray paint in a Cherry color, but I can't find paint in wood colors. Can anyone help me in finding the Cherry spray paint? Please offer brand names so I can do a search online. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks! in advance. God Bless.......John 3:16

Don't make yourself nuts trying to match it - it's not the decorating trend, anyway! Maybe you could paint it and antique it in a darker "rattan-like" color -spray paint works well with wicker/rattan in my experience and then you could use an antiquing kit - there are lots at the hardware store...Take a look at what they have in Pier One & stores like that as a guide to what you would like your headboard to turn out like..

You can do a glaze technique:

to do your headboard use a sea sponge from hardware store to get into the cracks. You will follow the directions for coloring the glaze{website directions} Then dip sponge wipe on wait a minute then wipe off excess. Repeat until desired color is reached. It may take several application but should work well. When getting the glaze ask if it has a dull finish or should you apply a coat of polyurithan(?) if your other items have a high shine you want to match. Good Luck.

Someone should make this color - that's the reason I was looking on this website. Trying to find cherry wood paint - since mauve is out now. The mauve carpet is easy to replace but the furniture and pictures/frame are not. I changed the walls to a mauve mist which turned out light lavender. I hate to paint the wall again and it is growing on me. Suggestions? Should I paint the furniture all white or black? Thanks.
