Making Wicker Chairs

Do It Yourself styled home improvement projects are gaining a lot of momentum, especially because people tend to merge them with their creative designs, creating elegant outputs. Though making a chair does not sound much of a creative job, it will surely be one, especially if you are planning to make a wicker chair. Such chairs are built on a wood or steel platform with threads of rattan or bamboo weaved over it in a typical pattern. Such chairs add a good visual appeal to your interior as well as garden or patio.

Select the type of raw material (like rattan, willow, etc.) and an appropriate frame (wood or plastic preferably). Soak the raw material in water for a couple of hours & start securing them on the frame using hammer & nails. Use a good latex paint; opt for at least two coats. Add a coat of marine varnish over it.
