Different color but this idea
To start turning the old lady into a hot, modern momma, I used the sanding block to rough up her frame. While the orbital sander is super efficient, makes cool noises and really gets rid of existing finishes, it's not ideal for thin, round surfaces. By sticking with the sanding block, I was able to wrap around the rounded legs as well as the back and also get the old finish out from the nooks and crannies. Overall, this chair took about 20 minutes to strip. She's also a great example of a seat which is super easy to reupholster. Simply stretch batting and fabric across the top, then staple underneath. To take it one step further: Cut a piece of black fabric to size, then staple that to the bottom, covering up the staples and cut edges underneath.
Aside from chairs and a table, you'll need an orbital sander, a sanding block, spray primer, high-gloss spray paint and a spray handle. - Skip the orbital sander.
Like this living room, Rodarte mixed traditional elements with fresh colors. The basic elements of the room — elegant drapes, a classic rug and solid furniture —make it easy to rotate accessories. It also makes it easy to try a bright color, like the yellow ottoman, so you'll never tire of your space.
