I would pick spray paint.
NO! i don't think it would hold up to spray paint! that material would soak it all up, and not coat evenly. also i think with all those nooks and crannies it wouldn't dry properly and honestly would be a total mess. if you want to incorporate some blue put a blue rug under it!
Im not a rattan fan (or as us old fold call it, wicker!).But I think it probably could be spraypainted...you'd just need to do several very light coats to make sure you got in all the crevices without drips.
don't paint it. leave it. really.
I like the blu rug idea and maybe add some subtle gold here and there- i think i would look fab! =)
I think it would look good but I would try to find something similar (and cheaper) to try it out on first. $88 is a lot to spend if it doesn't work!
I don't feel good about painting it either!
no, I think it is stunning the way it is, how about a pale blue pillow for your poof!
I think it's much like painting wicker-and should work...problem is as people use it it will crack and break here and there and will have obvious spots a diff color. I'm not sure if it will hold color being I think it has a sheen to it if I remember right...This is the one from UO? I saw it in person last weekend...
We have a rattan stool in our LR (it's about 4 yrs old) and as the that is starting to show its age in the way that jmae described. Real rattan in high traffic areas tends to peel, splinter, shred i nmy experience. So if its painted, same goes for the paint. I say yay if it's purely a decorative piece. Nay if it's a highly used item. =]
I'm with the group on this one. Cute idea, though.jbhat
I like it how it is, but what about pinning on blue accents? Or tying blue fabric around it in a bow (depending on what look you are going for!)
I have an ottoman that looks to be made out of similar material, and, based solely on that, I would say no to painting. I don't think paint would adhere well at all. It's cute though!
