PAINTING A WICKER BASKET IS CHILD’S PLAY WITH SPRAY PAINT. IT COVERS QUICKLY AND GETS INTO ALL OF THE HARD TO REACH PLACES A BRUSH WOULD STRUGGLE WITH.
Wicker baskets add texture to your home and are great for storing logs, newspapers, magazines – not forgetting clean (and not-so-clean) washing
What you will need
A wicker basket
Rust-Oleum Surface Primer
Rust-Oleum Painter’s Touch
Newspaper / dust sheets
Move the wicker basket outside or into the garage and lay down dusts sheets or newspaper to contain spray mist. Remove any existing flaking paint and use a damp cloth to ensure the surface is clean and free from dust, residue etc. When dry, lightly sand the surface for better paint adhesion.
Give the basket two light coats with Rust-Oleum Surface Primer for best finish possible.
When this is dry, apply two light, even coats of Rust-Oleum Painter’s Touch in your chosen shade. Always follow the instructions on the back of the can and allow to dry completely for 24 hours.
Ensure you follow the instructions on the can. Rust-Oleum Appliance Enamel is available in white and stainless steel.
If you make a mistake or have dripping or bubbling, don’t panic; you can correct just about any error with sandpaper.
Simply wait until the paint is dry (allow around 60 minutes) and sand these back, then reapply the top coat.
