Honey finish is also referred to as natural finish. Honey finish products have a clear coat of acrylic sealer applied to the wicker which protects it and allows its natural color to show. Depending on the wicker that is being used, the colors can range from light wheat to brilliant yellows. Other colors such as pecan and brown are stains that are applied to the wicker and wiped down then let to dry after which a clear coat is applied to seal and protect it.

For stained pieces, white wash and antique wash pieces, find a similar matching finish from the hardware or paint store and wipe it on the bad spot with a brush or rag. Let it sit for a while to allow it to sink in then wipe dry. Continue until a color match is achieved. Bright White acrylic/enamel paint can be applied to furniture that is painted bright white.
