11 tips for painting like a pro


Paint wicker furniture the right way

When painting wicker or other furniture made with natural fibres, you need to get into all the nooks and crannies. Smush your brush into the weave, then swipe it smooth. Use at least two coats of paint. Let it dry, then protect it for outdoor use with a coat of beeswax polish, and let it cure for a week.
