Jazz up a tired set of wicker chairs with eye-popping colours and metallic paint
By Sarah Heeringa. Photography Tony Brownjohn
Wipe chairs down with a soft cloth to remove any dust or dirt.
With a small brush, paint frames with Resene Enamacryl Metallic. We used Resene Silver Aluminium. We chose not to use a base coat in order to achieve a brushed-metal effect, but for a smooth finish, undercoat first in Resene Lumbersider.
To protect the metallic finish, topcoat the frames in Resene Multishield+ (for outdoor use) or Resene Aquaclear (for indoor use).
Paint wicker with Resene Enamacryl Gloss Waterborne Enamel. An old paintbrush works best to get between the woven strands. We chose Resene Flamingo for a burst of brightness.
