Painting wicker furniture is one of those jobs that you look at it and think how can I get a good finish on such a tricky-looking surface?

The Lazy Susan team have had a little search on the old interwebs and compiled some of our favourite how-to videos.

First up, we have this video from Deco Bliss that demonstrates how to paint rattan wicker furniture. They show you how to get a great finish and how to avoid unsightly blobs and over-spray. It is not an easy job to tackle but Aspect carefully explains how you can get it right the first time!

Next up we have the team at Better Homes & Gardens, who demonstrate how easy it is to revive dull, dated wicker furniture in a flash with their easy spray-paint tutorial.

Painting wicker furniture is a great way to update your old conservatory or patio furniture and other wicker pieces.

It's a quick DIY project you can easily complete in the afternoon and our next video from Lovely Etc. shows you how to properly prep your wicker for painting, including dealing with any old, peeling paint.

If you're a little unsure about using spray paint, then this is the video for you, as they show you how you can paint that tired wicker furniture with a rattle can. Plus, there's a helpful breakdown in the description of the products they used and links to purchase them.
