Found this cute child size desk chair on my recent thrifting rounds.
And while I LOVE finding ‘child size’ items; I HATE that they almost always come laden with stickers!!! ACK!!! Only a few to deal with on this particular piece. Plus, it had a fairly shiny finish, so I was going to need to sand it before repainting it anyhow. And the stickers sand right off with the finish.
If you don’t have an orbital sander, and you want to fix up and repaint old furniture; you really NEED this tool. It would have taken a good HOUR to hand sand this little chair. With the orbital it took about 5 minutes. Time IS money!
Most of the chair I was able to paint using a mini sponge roller. Just needed a brush for the corners. Using a paint roller is a real time saver too. Plus the paint goes on much smoother and more evenly.
