What paint to use on rusty outdoor table?

Hi All

I have an outdoor table (one with a glass top). It has a little rust on it. Would like to paint it. What should I do/use?

Cheers

Re: painting rusty outdoor table

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @doitmyself. It's sensational that you've joined us, and many thanks for your question on paint preparation.

 

Would you be able to upload an image of the rust affected areas as that will help our members provide some great solutions?

 

I suspect the process you'll need to follow will be very similar to the one demonstrated in this step-by-step guide: How to paint metal. You might also like to check out this previous discussion about painting over rusty metal.

 

Once we have an idea of the surface you're trying to prepare, we'll be able to offer further assistance.

Hi @doitmyself,

 

Just checking in to see if you need a hand uploading a photo of your table so our members can see what you are working with and provide assistance. Please let me know if I can help.

Hi

I did take a photo but the rust doesn't show up (it's one of those glass top outdoor tables)

 

I found an answer on another site. Will give it a go.

 

Thanks
