I would love advice from the Apartment Therapy readers as to the best way to restore these relics. I have already cleaned the surface rust off with vinegar and aluminum foil. Should I just leave them in their rusted glory with a clear coat of lacquer? Attempt a new paint job on my own? Or splurge on getting them powder coated? My fear is that powder coating will be too expensive and make them look too new. What do you think?
