How to Paint a Wicker Chair

Painting an old wicker chair is an easy DIY project that can breathe new life into old furniture. Here’s how to go about it.

  1. Use an air compressor to blow off all the dirt and dust from the cracks between the caning.
  2. Scrub the chair down with denatured alcohol to clean the surface.
  3. Use a hot glue gun to reattach any loose caning.
  4. Apply several light coats of spray paint to the chair.
  5. Make sure the paint has dried completely before using the chair. Directing a fan on the chair for a few hours will help speed up the drying process.
  6. Save any leftover paint to use for touch-up later.


  1. I used the spray paint at home depot to paint a wicker chair and I can’t stand the smell of the chair what can I do about the smell.
