Rattan and Wicker Furniture

  • Sarah Engler and Alexis Givens

What You'll Need

  • Three cans Krylon Interior-Exterior spray paint (comes in 62 colors; shown in Glossy White; $5.50 each, krylon.com for store locations).
  • One pack 220-grit sandpaper (about $4 at hardware stores).

How to Do It

Step 1: If your piece has a clear topcoat or has been painted previously, give it a light sanding to help the paint adhere.

 Step 2: Spray-paint the top of the piece (for the technique, see Step 2 of Coffee Table). Let it dry completely, which will take about an hour. Next, flip it over and do the same on the underside. Repeat the process as many times as you need to coat all the recessed areas. (The rattan chair shown here required four light, even coats.)
