How to refinish the rusty chrome legs on Costco stool?
I have a Costco stool that I took completely taken apart. I have had no problem painting the frame and recovering the seat and back. I don’t know how to go about refinishing the rusting on the legs. It is not rusted out, just surface rust. Any help will be appreciated. Barb

The chrome finish on the legs was protecting the steel from rust. Now that the chrome is gone in those spots the metal underneath will eventually rust again . You could try aluminum foil to minimize the rest area by rubbing on it. Once you’re fairly satisfied you can then spray with polyurethane clear to protect it from for the rusting.
Here are a bunch of remedies to try!
I'd use 0000 steel wool along with some baking soda paste and vinegar to clean them up. Mix some water with baking soda and put it on the legs. Then spray it with a mix of vinegar & water - 50% - 50% of each. Then take the steel wool and rub in it gently to remove the rust. Once the rust is gone, rinse the legs and let them dry, then use Rustoleum spray paint to redo the finish. Do 2 light coats, letting the first one dry before applying the second one. Heavy coats tend to peel over time. I hope this helps you. Wishing you the best! -Linda
I use a green kitchen scrubby and WD40.
Water and crumpled foil works miracles. Use earplugs because the sound is awful.
