Hope that isn't laytex paint on that chair. If so oil base won't attach to it. To find out rub a little alcohol on it with an artist brush in some out of the way spot. If the paint dissolves with the alcohol, it is laytex, and you will have to clean with soap and water, and scuff sand with 320 grit sand paper and 000 steel wool. Then prime and recoat with a laytex type paint. Note to all... laytex is not good for furniture and especially outside furniture. Wicker furniture is almost impossible to strip and so when painting wicker you should think twice, and skip laytex here.
