Vintage Yellow Chrome Kitchen Step Stool by Cesare Chrome Furniture

Just finished reupholstering another vintage chrome step stool, this time using bright yellow marine vinyl. The chrome seems to be in pretty good condition although there is a bit of wear on the legs which doesn’t  detract from the overall look.   The rubber treads on the steps are in good original condition.   We saved the original paper labelling on the bottom of the stool seat and stapled it on after we finished recovering it.  It says that it was made by Cesare Chrome Furniture Mfg, a Division of Restorite Bedding Co. Ltd. in Weston, ON.  I did a little research and found out that the company closed shop in 1987.

This will be going up to my booth at the Almonte Antique Market very shortly.  Address is 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON.  Open 7 days a week, year round, with over 50 vendors in a 2 storey building. Check out my booth on the 2nd floor near the back windows.

Priced at $60

Please note this item is now SOLD!!!

    I have a chair just like the yellow one you had for sale. I need to know if you replaced the vinyl on the under side of the steps. If so how did you do it? I would like to remove the aluminum trim around the edges but don’t know it it can be done without damage. Any tips you can share would be appreciated.

      We didn’t replace any vinyl on the underside of the steps. I can’t remember exactly what was on the underside actually but usually there is only the metal of the step showing so no need to do anything special to it other than cleaning. I don’t think you can remove the chrome trim from around the edges without damaging it but we have never tried to do that. Perhaps someone reading this thread will have some advice for you.
