welcome to fix this, presented by home advisor. the best way to pros. >> in our budget fix today, making something old new once again. how to turn a piece of old furniture turn it into a modern look. i like that it's refinishing wood. >> yes. >> becky is with us. you ran into this with your own place. >> we have a short-term rental. we just finished our kitchen. i needed bar stools for this peninsula we had. i looked for weeks for bar
-- bar stools that would work. i couldn't find anything. i thought i have some things that may do the trick. i got to work. check it out. >> have you ever had a piece of furniture that left a lot to be desired? i have. they were these bar stools. they were beat up and scuffed and beat up by fabric that had seen better days. it was time for an upgrade. after a recent kitchen renovation, i didn't want to spend anymore money on brand new bar stools. i looked at the positive. these are also solid wood and a simple design. something this do-it-yourselfer could do.
pose centered -- upholstered the wood. i laid it out in a well vented area. then i unscrewed the seat cushion from the wood base. i sat the cushion aside in a safe place. we'll get to that upgrade later and sat down to clean the bar stool. i wanted all of that grime off of it before i dealt wi stain. up next, stain stripper. you can get any of this at any big box store. it is a huge help, especially if you don't want to spend a lot of time sanding. i put this on with a couple of coats. it takes a bit of elbow grease to scrape off the finish.
i was fine with that. i cleaned it off again and got out my handheld sander. if you're going to sand, you will need one of these. i used an 80 grit piece of sandpaper. remember, don't forget the safety goggles when tackling this, and have patience. even though i had stripped a lot of the original stain off, this part of the process still took a while with the por once i was finished, i cleaned it off again and applied a wood conditioner. this is a very important step. it allows your new stain to go on evenly. i let the conditioner sit for about 15 minutes, then i carefully applied the stain. i thought this would go thistly with the new cabinets. once the stain was completely
coats of a polyurethane nish. it won't protect these bar stools from everything, but it will give them extra durability. in the end, it was just the upgrades these bar stools needed. their new color make them look a lot more modern than they once did. okay all of these stepping will be on 9news.com. as reupholsteryied. it doesn't have to be a bar stool. it can be anything. >> boy, does that look good.
again. it's amazing. you can do this on a table. you can do this on pretty much anything around the house. that's what i love about this. if you don't have the bar school. you have other options. >> and the cushion is pretty easy too. don't let that intimidate you. can't wait to show you what that's like next week. >> okay.
