The vinyl upholstery of the 1950’s was of a lighter weight than current materials, and usually did not have reinforced jersey backing like our vinyl does today. The result was that chair seats could split in transit due to extreme cold weather. The chairs of that era used cotton padding, not nearly as comfortable as the polyurethane foam used today.

The classic chrome 1950s kitchen table typically featured a Formica or laminate top. To restore laminate table tops, use a simple epoxy to secure any loose or peeling laminate. Fill small chips using a laminate repair kit, or mask these voids using two crayons that are roughly the same color as the laminate. Fill the hole using the lighter crayon, then add a layer of the darker crayon to help conceal the damage. The Formica Company lists a number of recommended cleaners, including lemon oil, that can be used to shine and restore laminate. If the top is badly damaged, consider covering it with a new sheet of laminate. Clean the surface with a solvent to remove grease and oil, then sand to roughen up the laminate. Use contact adhesive to add a layer of laminate to the table top, then roll out air bubbles and secure the surface using a laminate roller.

The secret to successful chrome restoration lies in removing rust and dirt without scratching the shiny metal surface of your table and chair legs. Chrome tables and chairs in fairly good condition can be cleaned using a simple cheesecloth dipped in a mild detergent, like liquid dish soap. Remove stains using a soft cloth dipped in baby oil, then wipe clean with a damp rag. Tackle rust on chrome chairs or tables using a piece of crumpled aluminum foil to gently brush rust away. If you’re faced with heavy rust and corrosion, try dipping the foil in warm water or vinegar for greater effect.

Chrome kitchen chairs with leather seats should be cleaned using a mild dish detergent and warm water, then dried with a soft cloth. Use solvent to spot clean fabric, or simply vacuum with an upholstery attachment. Dip a soft bristle brush in dish detergent and warm water, then use it to gently scrub vinyl seats. If vinyl is cracked or damaged, pick up a vinyl upholstery repair kit, which uses heat to rejoin the vinyl and repair signs of damage. For badly damaged chairs, consider having the seats reupholstered in the material of your choice.

Tables and chairs more than half a century old can develop severe rust, pitting and discoloration that you may find difficult to remove. To restore badly damaged tables and chairs, consider having the chrome replated using an electroplating technique. This process involves stripping, polishing and plating the chrome to give it a smooth, shiny finish. Electroplating involves dangerous chemicals, and is strictly regulated in many areas, so this is a job best left to the pros. To mimic this effect on your own, consider spraying the chrome with a chrome paint product. These products won’t hold up against close scrutiny, but they will hide the worst of the damage and give the chrome legs a clean, shiny finish.
