To paint or not to paint: There are many ways to get the distressed look, ultimately it is what your personal taste is. Look past the rust on items that have seen better days. Clean it with soap, scrap off flakes seal inside and out with a satin clear sealer. If you seal it with oil, buff a few times so there isn’t residue.
