Can I Strip the Paint From Wicker Furniture?

Painted wicker should never be stripped because the reeds can become extremely brittle. Don't take a chance on stripping it. If paint is clogging the weave, carefully remove it with an awl, an ice pick, or a small screwdriver. Instead of stripping wicker furniture, cover clean paint with a new coat or two of spray paint. Follow product label instructions for best results. With proper care, your old wicker furniture can look as good as new.
