    HI Belinda,

    Could you post a picture so we can see what you see, that would really help for the best solution.

    And please let us know the dimentions... length, width, and height.

    Many thanks.

    Hi there. I would recommend spray paint to refinish the wire bookcase. I would clean it thoroughly with Krud Kutter TSP, then spray with black spray paint. I would use a spray polyurethane to protect it because it will be used outside.

    I have a talk one. Clean well and spray paint for metal. I would add a solid surface to shelves. Look for large laminate floor samples. You could find the color you want at a floor cover outlet and buy a a foot of two off a 12 foot side roll and cut your own. Easy to cut. Or use thin wood on your shelves. Hope this helps.

    That should say tall one and wide roll. I hate it when tab changes you words.
