I would think it would be pretty simple to achieve this effect on your old outdated items too. Even if you can't actually dip the items, you could use a taping technique. You would just tape off the top of your chairs & paint them a clean white, or go for a visual punch with hot pink, peacock blue or any other bright color. I could see this trick working to unify a mismatched assortment of chairs.
I kind of want to try it out on my plain wooden tv trays to give them an artistic look instead of being just the cookie cutter tv trays. I of course would use bright yummy colors, although the neutal colors are just as yummy!
peace & love,
