Painting Wicker Furniture

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.

You will have to spray it, no way to brush it on and make it look good. Clean and scrape anything loose off first and then spray away! Good luck!

Always use spray paint -- much easier than brushes!
