    oid with a damp cloth & then some mineral spirits & spray paint with rWhat I have done is using my hand held electric sander, I get off all the old rust & paint before anything else. If the piece isn't rusty after this I wipe down good with a damp cloth & mineral spirits , let dry & spray with rustler paint.

    If your furniture is in good shape and not peeling or marked up, you can just spray with that fabulous Rustoleum...they come in a large variety of colors and finishes ...just put a huge plastic drop cloth outside and just spray...great results with this awesome product...

    Rust on metal worried us when we considered painting. Instead of sandblasting, we cleared rust pretty well with pressure washer, and once metal was dry, spray paint worked nicely. Try a texture ... looks great!

      Thanks Kathleen, I hadn't thought about using a pressure washer. That's a great idea.
