Fixing up rusted iron candle holder

Instead of taking this completely rusted iron candle holder to the metal recycle shop, it now sits on our deck looking quite spiffy.

Just scrub old iron down with a wire brush or steel wool, then wash with warm soaping water. Let dry thoroughly. Finally spray with a rust-resistant paint.

Wah-lah! A beautiful new piece.

Love to hear any quick and easy ideas you have for recycling old material.
