Update cane or wicker furniture

Give wicker or cane furniture an instant makeover with Rust-Oleum spray paint.


Rust-Oleum spray paint offers endless opportunities to update almost any type of furniture, but it's the ideal choice for giving wicker or cane indoor and outdoor furniture a new look.

Wicker and cane furniture is durable and comfortable, and a favourite choice for patio furniture for many South Africans due to the fact that it is organic and one hundred percent natural. In fact, wicker is so popular that contemporary furniture manufacturers replicate the look in a synthetic form.

How to revamp wicker furniture:


1. Take a stiff - not hard - brush to clean the furniture and remove debris from the weave and where it has accumulated. You want the wicker or cane furniture to be as clean as possible. If necessary, use warm soap water to help remove stubborn dirt, but dry immediately after cleaning.

GOOD TO KNOW: Clean wicker or cane furniture on a sunny day, where you can leave the furniture outdoors to dry after cleaning.

2. Spray paint is the perfect choice for painting wicker or cane furniture. Spray paint gets into all the difficult areas and between the weave design. Rust-Oleum have a range of spray paints that are easy to apply, offer high coverage, and are available in a kaleidoscope of colours. You will find the full range of Rust-Oleum spray paints at your nearest Builders store.

GOOD TO KNOW: Apply light, even coats over the furniture to prevent drips and runs.

Rust-Oleum 2X spray paint is available in flat, satin or gloss finish. Rust-Oleum Universal offers ultimate coverage and durability on any surface - at any angle.

And because everyone loves chalk paint, Rust-Oleum Chalked ultra matte spray paint allows you to apply a chalk paint finish to wicker and cane furniture.

Using chalk paint on wicker and cane furniture allows you to distress or apply a glaze for a vintage finish - on indoor or patio furniture.
