Wicker Makeover with Paint

 Earlier this week I showed you how I have been painting a claw foot tub.  Now I am going to give you another sneak peek into a paint project for my bathroom.  A wicker bench that I have given a makeover with paint.  A little light paint on wicker gives it a almost rustic beachy appearance that I thought would go perfectly with the vibe I am going for in this room.  This is just the start of the projects for this room so y’all stay tuned for more bathroom projects and a final reveal soon.  This post on painting wicker is part of my design team status with DecoArt however all projects and opinions are my own.
