Vintage Yellow Chrome Kitchen Step Stool by Cesare Chrome Furniture

28 May

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!!!

Mid Century Pink Vinyl Chrome Step Stool

This one only needed some cleaning of the chrome, repainting of  the steps and glueing on new rubber  treads to bring it up to snuff.

I like the way the mechanism on this step stool works.  The steps slide out rather than fold back under the chair as most others do.
