    You can spray paint it with Rustoleum 2X paint or seal it with a clear coat Marine grade spar urethane would work. Polyurethanes would chip and flake.

    If it is dusty pray it with a mix of 1:10 in a spray bottle. Rinse and dry. If it is going to be used outside, get a stain that will preserve it. Transparent white or brown will do justice.

    Excessive drying is one of the most common reasons for the deterioration of wicker furniture. Preventing drying is simple. Just mist the furniture periodically with a plant mister or wipe with a damp cloth. A quick washing with a hose is unlikely to cause serious harm but can result in mildew problems if drying conditions are not ideal and can also compromise the strength of joints that are held together by glue. Often the underside of the furniture has less protective finish and is therefore better able to absorb and benefit from a regular misting.
