Upcycle A Wicker Chair With Spray Paint And Cushion Covers

New vibrant cushion covers transform this wicker armchair into a beautiful piece of furniture

When spraying wicker, it’s worth investing in a spray gun because it’s easier and quicker, plus you’ll get a better finish.

And it’s bound to be used again, as you’re sure to catch the recycling bug.

This chair cost $20 at a garage sale, and all it took to spruce it up was a hose down, a coat of primer and a topcoat.

We chose a creamy shade to complement the new cushion covers. 

The foam inserts from the old cushions were used as templates. The fabric was measured and cut, then the pieces sewn together, leaving the backs open. The foam was inserted into the covers and the backs were stitched closed.
