    Set the legs in a bowl of white vinegar. I cleaned rusty tools that way.

    rust-oleum makes a rust remover very good product. You don't have to get all the rust off and you can use rust-oleum paint as it stops rust

    My suggestion is to use sandpaper & a wire brush on the rusty spots; make sure it hasn't rusted through*; then apply a rust-oleum based primer & rust-oleum based paint in the color you desire. Enjoy! * IF it has rusted through the metal to the point where it may have weakened the leg...don't give up...locate another piece of metal tubing that will slip down inside the leg pipe, coat it with oil & drop it inside the leg, making sure it is long enough to cover the whole inside length so that it strengthens the rusted part; then finish as indicated above.
