Wicker Bench Restoration

I have had this wicker bench for about 10 years and it was looking pretty weathered. I used to have it inside in my bedroom but since moving to this house I really needed to have something on the front porch. However, it was in serious need of sprucing up. Enter my new found friend the spray paint. I used the Krylon brand Fusion paint in black. It is specifically for plastics, resins and wicker.
Here's a pic of it before:

And this is it after:


I need to add some nice colorful pillows and I plan on putting those ferns into some new red pots. I think that will tie in nicely with the black.
I refuse to throw away perfectly good furniture and I think I can get several more years of good use out of these pieces. What do you think? What projects have you done recently by repurposing what you already have?
