Flea Market Chic: Painted Wicker


Flea Market Chic-Painted Wicker

Whether you live coastally or not, wicker has made a huge come back. Once thought of as a seasonal material, is now being used both indoors and out, year round. Wicker has a unique & casual texture that blends seamlessly with any material. It can be found just about everywhere these days but if you want a real bargain, hit some yard sales or flea markets this summer. This woven material is so versatile, you can use your gently worn wicker finds as is or paint them for a fresh look.

Through the years I have collected my fair share of wicker. My personal instinct is to go neutral, either white, natural or dark brown. Sticking with neutrals, allows me flexibility to change things around and move pieces from room to room.

If neutral isn’t your thing, then go bold with your wicker. You can paint a single piece for a pop of color and repeat the tone with other accessories in the room or paint a set, even a grouping of chairs for continuity. Tip-if you can’t find that perfect color in a spray paint, try using a paint sprayer, that way you can customize your color.
