Our patio fireplace! It's some sort of metal, my mom's neighbor was moving a few years ago and gave it to mom for me. It was in great shape - not sure there was ever a fire in it then. We've used if some over the years and I noticed that it was getting some fine rust in the finish. The original was a dull silvery finish. A quick trip to the hardware store in the next town and I was in business. I talked to the men there (none under 60) they reccomended this product. Good for wood stoves and grills!
Yesterday I wire brushed it off, today I used one of the 2 cans I bought and when it's totally dry I will light a fire to heat cure it. I'm seeing the overspray on the concrete...whoops....hopefully a little steel wool later will fix that. We were out of newspaper to lay down and I was in a rush to get it painted while it's not hot and humid.
After I hit it there was a bit left in the can so I touched up our 17 year old grill too.this time I was smarter and grabbed some painter tape and papers from the recycle bin
Top is before...bottom is after with the shiney part still wet
