Good Questions: Identifying Thrift Store Chairs?

Good Questions: Identifying Thrift Store Chairs?

Apartment Therapy DC reader Jane needs help identifying her newest thrift-store find: "Recently I came across a couple of interesting plastic chairs in an antique store for only a few dollars. I thought they may look a little too close to school chairs but I went against my better judgment and bought them. They were incredibly filthy, but after a little scrubbing here and there, they are actually quite nice - aside from the wear on their legs. I was wondering, are these chairs worth salvaging, and if so, how can I restore the legs?"
