Remove the rust from your shabby-looking furniture

Time and elbow grease is what you will need to renew rusty metal furniture. Take your arms for a good well-deserved workout and rust off with a stiff wire brush, then sand the painted edges smooth. Wash thoroughly with a hose and allow to dry. Your eyes will not believe the transformation and you will be content with yourself for not disposing it without knowing there is a solution for everything!
