A Wicker Rocking Chair

For Your Front Porch

Just about everyone has a nice memory of a wicker rocking chair. My Grandma had one on her porch - and it had a well-worn cushion, too.

Wicker rockers may be made from either natural or synthetic materials. Wicker refers to the method of weaving materials such as rattan, bamboo, willow, or synthetics.

Wicker is well-known for its strength and durability. Natural wicker can be any part of a plant, such as the cores or canes of rattan stalks or other materials like reed and bamboo.

Painting Wicker Furniture

Have a wicker rocker you'd like to restore? We thought we'd share Danny Lipford's process for painting a wicker chair. You can easily apply his process to your porch wicker rocker.




  • First you need to thoroughly clean the wicker furniture. He uses denatured alcohol because it evaporates quickly.
  • He then applies thin layers of spray paint to the chair so as to avoid runs.
  • Allow your piece to dry thoroughly for several days before using.



Care for Your Wicker Rocker

A natural wicker rocker is unsurpassed for beauty but requires considerable upkeep. Most wicker rockers today are made from synthetic wicker that is long lasting and requires minimal care.

The new generation of synthetic wicker furniture is woven with polyethylene resin fibers that, when coupled with a sturdy frame, will stand up to years of use. Synthetic wicker comes in a variety of colors and styles.
