Wicker chair looking a little worse for wear? Don’t throw it out. With a little attention and a lick of paint, you can transform your chair and add years to its life.
We’d suggest doing this D.I.Y. project outside, with a drop sheet underneath your workspace in order to limit clean-up.
Use a microfibre cloth to wipe away any dust or cobwebs.
Give your chair a light sand using sandpaper. Once you’ve finished, give the chair a quick wipe to remove any dust so that the paint goes on smoothly.
It’s time to paint your chair! The first step is to apply the undercoat – this will help your colour adhere to the chair’s surface and prevent any old paint or varnish leaking through. Leave to dry.
You can then apply the spray paint, and we have a wide range of colours to choose from. You’ll want to apply at least two to three coats, depending on how deep you want the colour.
Leave to dry.
All that’s left is to style your space. Think about the new colour of your chair and how you can complement it in the wider space with other items like decorative cushions, candles or a side table.
Enjoy your freshly painted wicker chair! Upcycled wicker chairs are practical additions for entertaining, and they’re a great way to add a pop of colour to your space
