    What is wrong with it?

    Does it need painting?

    Rub down to remove the chipped paint and possible rust with a wire brush. Then a fine wet and dry paper. Then use a metal paint like hammerite or Rustoleum. This comes in a tin or spray can.

    Then just replace the slats. Dismantle and use them as a pattern for more planks.

    I think yacht ply might be best but I'm not an expert on wood.
