A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to get these beauties when Jon spotted them and knew we had to have them.
They were filthy, but they had beautiful lines and amazing leather that was covered in mold (ew!) and chrome legs that were covered in rust (ew, again!)
Once Jon sent me a picture I immediately said yes, because I knew that had to be something special and lo and behold when we flipped them over we saw that they were Arrben leather chairs that are currently on sale on 1st Dibs for $2,400!
With a little elbow grease and a magic eraser we were able to clean up the leather, but the rust on the chrome was another issue. I tried a couple of things and nothing was working and then I found the perfect solution in my kitchen!
Aluminum foil came to my rescue. I didn’t think it was going to work, but it took the frames of the chairs from this:
By simply taking a piece of aluminum foil and rubbing it over the rust. I tried it doing it with the both the shiny and non shiny sides of the foil and both worked.
Oh so very simply and easy!
