Do any of you have hand-me-down furniture? The family beach house came furnished, so we are getting creative with ways to update old and tired pieces while spending very little money. There was a large, beige wicker chair in the living room that I liked, but it just didn’t seem beachy enough so I whipped out the spray paint for a quick and cheap fix.
Be sure to buy more paint than you think you need if you decide to tackle a wicker chair. Due to all the little nooks and crannies, the paint won’t go as far as you expect it to. This chair took almost three full cans of spray paint that were applied in just two coats. Also, before you paint wicker be sure to clean it as well as possible, because the dust will show up more once you have paint over it (unfortunately I was impatient and didn’t clean as well as I should have…lesson learned). No need to sand a piece of wicker furniture (I'm not even sure if that's possible), but try to use a paint that has primer mixed in.
