The Story: I went to a friend’s house to help him with his plywood. As I walked to his floor, I noticed rusted iron shelves by the neighbor’s house. Kept in the hallway, it seemed like they wanted to throw it away. I waited for about a week and upon my inquires, they did want to discard it. The shelves were rusted but could be rescued. I asked him if I could help him refurbish it, but he had already replaced the stand. So I bought the stand for a small sum, and started to work on my vision.
I took home the shelves, and started to scrape the surface with thick and thin scraping papers.. Sure enough, the rust had reached about 2 layers deep inside, but it could be fixed. Scraping the the shelves for about a week with scraping paper and chemicals, the shelves were finally rust free and the redecorating began!
