Curb Rescue Wicker Loveseat


Material: Discarded Wicker Loveseat

This is one of my favorite makeovers. I found the wicker loves eat on the curb ready to be thrown out. I loaded it into the car and gave it a $10 makeover. I removed some of the wicker details to give the love seat a more modern feel, spray painted the frame a dark espresso brown, and painted the ugly cushions with latex paint! Yes, that’s right…you can paint fabric with latex paint. That was the most time consuming part of the project since it takes about six coats to get the fabric uniformly covered. Between each coat it is important to sand the paint. The finished product is a very comfortable cushion that no one can tell was painted.
