    Is it real wicker? I'm going to assume this is outdoor furniture? I'm not sure if milk paint would work if it's the "new" type of wicker, which is plastic. Also not certain how weather resistant it would be. I'd think a spray paint meant for outdoor furniture would work best.

    A flat white exterior spray paint is your best option for a milk paint look.

    Hi Sally, you can use milk paint to paint outdoor furniture and it will hold up pretty well. Make sure to use some bonding agent in the milk paint so that it will adhere properly. When you are finishes with your coats of paint, you can use several layers of Hemp Oil to finish off the chair and it should up well outside. Hope that helps :)

    Spray paint is the way to go
