Jazz up a tired set of wicker chairs with eye-popping colours and metallic paint.
Step 1 Wipe chairs down with a soft cloth to remove any dust or dirt.
Step 2 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.
Step 3 To protect the metallic finish, topcoat the frames in Resene Multishield+ (for outdoor use) or Resene Aquaclear (for indoor use).
Step 4 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.
