    Lots of different ways to do this, but you'll probably need to sand it anyway before priming and painting it.

    If you want to neutralize the rust and turn it into something that acts a primer, Rustoleum has a product called Black Rust Converter that sprays on and stops the rust. Generally, you don't sand afterward since the black finish is the primer. WD-40's Rust Remover Soak does a great job on rust. Naval Jelly is also good.

      My best friend's ex-wife makes $75/hr on the laptop. She has been unemployed for 7 months but last month her income with big fat bonus was over $15000 just working on the laptop for a few hours. Read more on this site & start your work.. Good luck...

    I usually use steel wool 000 & 0000 grade, sometimes a very fine brass wire brush also for tough spots. Naval Jelly is my next option, but wear gloves and goggles as its caustic. Then I use Rustoleum metal paints also. They make a couple gold colored spray paints,

    Ketchup. The acid in it will desolve the rust. Rub off with a cloth , then wipe with damp cloth to remove any residue let dry then spray with clear sealant.

    Mr. Clean Magical eraser is advertised for removing rust. However if it in antique table, you may want to consult an antique dealer before removing what they call the patina off the metal.

    Lovely table! It looks so unique! I think Lenora is right about checking with an antiques dealer to make sure you do not devalue the piece with your efforts!
