That Rusty Old Basket

Submitted to Community Café

When I  came acrossed this rusty metal basket, I fell in love with it.  I had no idea how to salvage it, until now!  Rust-Oleum Rust Dissolver to the rescue!  Will post after photos, when I  get it done.  Then I  will have to decide what to best finish it with.  Hammered, textured, metallic....Oh My!

Finally things came together and my rusty old basket is all cleaned up and painted with hammered copper.  The regular spray rust remover did a good job, considering how solid the rust was.  I cleaned it three times and decided that was plenty good.  When it is fully cured, I will look it over for needed touch up work in crooks and crannies.  I couldn't be happier with the outcome!  Much gratitude to Rust-Oleum and community members for your encouragement and support!  :)
