In my very own basement, I came across an unloved piece of furniture that would fit our new-to-us foyer perfectly, with a little makeover:
the old Pier One wicker bureau that used to grace my babies’ nursery. Do you have one just like it?
The middle drawer front had fallen off, so I banged a few nails right into the wicker to re-attach it to the frame. Once painted up these nails are not even detectable.
I used Krylon spray paint in black satin. Spray paint is definitely the way to go when painting wicker because the mist gets into all the nooks ‘n crannies so much better than a brush. Also spray paint is oil-based which is a must when painting furniture, as it adheres better and is less likely to chip over time.
I had a piece of glass cut for the top.
Wow that 80s tile is really something isn’t it? 🙂
