DIY Idea: Transform an Old Rattan Pouf

Old Brand New

Poufs are great to have because they can be used as an ottoman, a coffee table with the addition of a tray, or extra seating when needed with the addition of a pillow. So before you toss out an old piece that might feel like it's getting tired, try adding some color to give it new life. This DIY by Dabito of the blog Old Brand New shows how to spruce up an existing piece of rattan furniture.

Dabito explains:

I've had this rattan pouf for about four years, and it was time to give it a fun and graphic makeover. Inspired by the colors of the thrifted painting above the mantel, I got some leftover paint (Behr black and white matte, and Rust-oleum's yellow sunburst to gloss it up!). I didn't use any tape, just eyeballed it with the brush and brushed around it with two coats. Super easy and took me about 20 minutes with the help of Beatrice. Let it dry overnight and poof! You got yourself a new pouf! It's a fun way to add a pop of color to any space!
