WEEKEND WONDERS - Trash to Treasure Helpful Hint

If you're like me, there's nothing more fun that finding that piece of "trash" that you know will become a treasure with lots of love & elbow grease! But what do you do if your trash is rusty wrought iron and you don't want a rusty finish? 
First use a wire brush to remove the loose rust. Then sand lightly or rub with some fine steel wool dipped in kerosene. After the kerosene has dried, the piece may be painted with outdoor paint for more years of beauty!
And boy, do I wish this table & chairs were mine!
