Rustproofing a metal shelf for the bathroom

by Pam
I have a small metal plant stand that I thought I would use in the bathroom to hold extra towels. Is there paint or some finish that I could use so moisture would not rust the stand? Thanks for any help.

    You can spray it with a clear rustoleum spray paint which should protect the metal from moisture.
