There is nothing quite like a real dinette set — a table, four chairs — preferably “vintage” — to anchor a kitchen design.  A kitchen island? I had one once, and it was nice. But we still spent our best times, fee firmly planted on the ground and lounging around the kitchen table. There is something — democratic — about the kitchen table.

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.

Classic 1950s chrome kitchen sets lend a vintage charm to modern homes. Unfortunately, many antique chrome tables and chairs show their age in the form of rusty legs, peeling laminate and cracked or dirty seats. With a bit of elbow grease, you can restore ’50s kitchen sets to their original glory to add character and one-of-a-kind style to your space.

Our Favorite Style Maker: While there’s no denying the appeal of a traditional dining set like a Duncan Phyfe reproduction—all that mahogany!—we house a special place for Milo Baughman’s dining sets. Crafted of glass, chrome, brass, or burl, his tables feature long, feed-a-crowd lengths and simple, Parsons-like silhouettes. In opposition to the table’s simplicity, chairs are low-slung, clubby in profile, and often feature bold, cabana-colored upholsteries. The marriage of the two opposites is glam perfection.

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.

Above: Before World War II, I think it was much more common to see dinettes built with metal tops painted in porcelain (baked on) enamels. We recently saw this New Old Stock table top for sale. It was from 1947, marketed by Sears. It sold on ebay for $229 plus shipping.

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.
