The Wood Grain Cottage
Keep checking back!
Your black wicker chair turned out beautiful. I found a green one at a consignment store, and would love to paint it barn red. Which spray paint do you prefer for your wicker projects?
Hi Julie! Thanks for the comment! I used Rust-oleum’s Ultra Cover spray paint. That tends to be my favorite.
Happy spray painting!
I love your wicker chair project and am hoping to do something similar for my nursery – have you noticed that the paint has chipped off of the wicker or not held so well? I only ask to because of having a baby around paint – this will be my first diy for his room and want to be cautious. Thanks!
Hi Tiffany! I’m so glad you like my black wicker rocker. We’ve been using it in our bedroom for a while now, and it doesn’t show any signs of ware. The paint isn’t peeling or scratching off.
I hope that helps!
Good luck on your nursery!
LOVE the bench in your kitchen! My husband and I are doing something similar, except with two as a corner nook. I’m a little puzzled about your lids. When he drilled the holes in the center, what did he put in it so that you could open the lid? It looks like it might be a ring recessed in the hole. We were thinking of an overhang so I could easily open the lid, but that has been problematic due to the two bench corners meeting. Thanks! And again, beautiful job!
HI Michelle! Thank you so much for your sweet comment!
For the bench lids, I use the hole that he drilled in each lid to open them. I just stick my finger through the hole and lift up. They open really easy and our cushion hides everything.
I hope that helps!
Hello! I Love, Love, Love your kitchen island! WOuld love to know where you got it. Your home is beautiful.
Hi Susan! THANK YOU so much! I bought our kitchen island at Home Depot. Someone had special ordered it and ended up not liking it. It was my lucky day! They have similar versions online!
Hope that helps!
