Easy Weekend Project - Wicker & A Faux Doily Table

My wicker needed an update. For a cheap Pier 1 set purchased 15 years ago, its really held up well. Its been repainted several different colors, the last being a dark green. I was ready for something lighter so I chose a spray paint in a light sage, almost cream, color.

It takes MANY coats to go from a dark color to a light one (the chair could stll use another coat).
I also painted a little rustic side table and decorated the top with a faux doily design. After painting the table the light sage color, I painted a center square in white. Then using just a touch of spray adhesive, I positioned the paper doily. (I find vintage ones at yard sales all the time, but you can also get them at a cake decorating supply store) After a few passes with the sage spray paint , carefully lift off the paper and your done!
Have a great weekend, everyone!!!

Great redo! We have one of those Pier One wicker sets. It's good to know they hold up! Ours is about 3 years old.

Hi Cottage Magpie!,

The wicker looks great! Where did you find the Light Sage Rustoleum color? I have not been able to find it any of my local stores.

Thanks!

Hi,
I got the light sage Rustolium at my Home Depot. Meiers also had that color.

Hope you find it near you.

Kimberly :)
