  • I would lightly sand the surface to remove the shine so the primer has something to grip to. Then add a primer then paint.

    Hello Ruth,

    Spray paint the Lattice work and maybe brush on the other parts. Best wishes. Nice Headboard!

    Yes, I would use a sprayer so it gets into all the nooks and crannies of the cane. Definitely sand first and prime with a good primer like B Moore. I would use a good paint for something like this that won't get a lot of chipping. Something like Benjamin Moore advance. It's a cabinet paint but is extremely heavy duty. good luck!

  • Prep is key. Be sure to clean it well before painting. The best way to paint the cane on it is spraying. Good luck with your project.

    Spray paint would work great on all of it and would be easy to use.

    Ruth: I think you could do exactly what I did on my coffee table!

    I'd spray it to get the fine details.

    Scuff with steel wool. Clean with denatured alcohol. Then you can prime & paint. I would spray since you have rattan and it would be difficult to brush paint thoroughly.

    I would use chalk paint. It sticks to just about anything with no primer needed.

    Hi! If you have access to a spray painter, this is an easy project. Clean well, using a TSP type cleaner (I like Krudkutter), and lightly scuff the finish. If you are going very dark or somewhere in between, did you know you can get your primer tinted to the final color? I get my Kilz tinted at the paint counter at Home Depot or Lowe's and you get much easier coverage and save paint! Good luck and stay safe!

    I would use a spray paint on this and should be fine.

    Hi Ruth: I'd use a spray primer and a spray paint to do this project. Good luck
