What type of paint is best to restore outdoor wicker furniture?

I found old outdoor wicker furniture that needs to be painted. One piece is a glider and the other is a tall-backed chair with curved "legs" that let you bounce in the chair. Both pieces have a rusted metal rim bordering the wicker. I would like to prevent any more rust and protect the wicker .

    I actually used spray paint on wicker. It's held up well for me. They have a large array of colors and even textures.

    Becky is absolutely right. Spray Paint. Just be sure to give it a good scrub first and let it dry out thoroughly. The hose, a soft brush and sunshine are all you need.

    spray paint is best. after you scrub it and it dries. wipe with clear vinegar.

    Clean first with white vinegar and water. Let completely dry and spray paint with OUDOOR spray paint for wicker furniture. I would seal it with an acrylic clear spray paint.

    I use spray paint by Rust_Oleum with pain and primer in one. It coats well and looks great. It costs about $7 a can, but well worth it.

      @Sandra Levy I use this too- also at Lowes they have an Outdoor Valspar spray paint and primer in one for outdoors-wood/plastic/metal/rust proof-it's a little cheaper-$4-5 a can- works good!!!

    My sister and I painted her wicker with rust oleum spray paint and that was 2yrs ago and it's still nice, she has a covered porch though so that might help.
