There is a mate to this one, on the other side of our kitchen bump-out (which I realize badly needs a scrape, sand, prime and paint itself) that was also fugly. I had to use a wire brush on the really bad rust spots.
It does a great job of getting all the tough rust off the metal. My rule of thumb, keep brushing until there isn't anything flying off into your eyeballs. And of course, never wear goggles. Now everything is much smoother!
Next up, my most favorite product for priming any item around our house...'rusty metal' primer that is ironically, the color of rust.
It goes on so quickly and dries in no time. I love it so much!
Yes, some lilies (and mulch) were painted in the process. It's their fault for growing too close and inside the stupid frame.
And the finale, Glidden Sweet Tea. This is the exterior flat latex paint I have used all over the outside of the house. I love this color with our brick.
Not bad, if I do say so myself. Although, it only makes the peeling white paint look even worse.
The wells are looking pretty, but in just a short while they will be completely covered with the daylilies.
I can't say I'll complain about all my hard work being covered by those beauties!
Now I just have to take care of that rotted siding. Bah.
