There are many furniture types that can decorate one’s house. One of them is indoor wicker furniture. At a glance, this furniture looks like a rattan but it is different on the texture. If the rattan furniture feels soft, this wicker home furniture feels stiff. However, it does not even decrease its beauty for every house. Today we will give you special tips to mend the broken or damaged wicker furniture. There are simple steps that you can do it yourself at home.
Before you start the steps to fix the broken wicker furniture, there are some tools and materials you need to prepare. So, these are the tools you need for your indoor wicker furniture: scissors, needle-nose pliers, and utility knife. The materials you need are water, spray paint, and tacks. Are you ready to start repairing? Here is the first step. You need to find which wicker looks loose or damaged. Then, using the scissors or knife, you cut it and soak it in the water for half the hour.
What is the purpose to soak indoor wicker furniture in the water for 30 minutes? It aims to make the wicker more flexible. When you fix it, it will be easier. Then, using glue, you can stick it to the part of the loose wrapping wicker. You need to look for the new strand of it. Insert its end part and tap it in a hole or space with small-sized tack. Wrap the new wicker in the part of the broken part. To make it stickier, you can add dab of glue around it.
If you see any remain of the strand, you can cut it with the knife. But remember to soak the water first for about 30 minutes to make it more flexible. Then, you can add glue again in the intersecting piece of the cane wicker. If the new strand is soft enough already, you can cut off any part of it which is longer than the provided length of the indoor wicker furniture. Then, you can tuck the end of the strand and you are ready to paint wicker furniture.
You can make your indoor wicker furniture more beautiful by applying new paint color on your furniture. But remember to make sure that the glue in the new strand is dry already. Otherwise, the paint will not completely stick to the new strand. If you want to get professional look, you can use paint sweeper.
