We found this old rusty metal table at (where else?) a garage sale this spring. Even for the bargain price of $2.00 I was a little skeptical, given all of the rust. But, it was just surface rust and the structure of the table was still good, and we figured for the price it was a pretty cheap gamble to take.
Lance spent the better part of an afternoon sanding away:
Then he sprayed everything down with rust converter and followed up with a couple of coats of spray paint. And here is the final result:
It looks so clean and bright now! And all it needed was some cleaning and a fresh coat of paint- nothing had to be re-built or repaired. More projects like this, please!
