Upcycle your old wicker furniture with a coat of spray paint - done mine in white quite some time ago - still looks great and it's easy! As spray paint goes everywhere and not to waste paint, suggest you have some covers right behind the back of the item(s) you are spaying! :)
A few years ago I bought a wicker chest from Canadian Tire. It hung out in storage for a few years after my puppy turned the bottom drawer into a chew toy! After applying some Annie Sloan paint and spray paint to the wicker drawers it now serves as a great storage unit in my family room! No sanding required .. Yay chalk paint!!!
