Kilz® white primer
Medicine chest - rusty
Mr. Pippin noticed my internet ad and asked us to visit San Diego, California. He paid for our little trip to this beautiful resort area. George lived in Chula Vista near the Mexican boarder. He had a huge laundry list that needed immediate attention. This job is one of the items of his list.
This post shows the nine steps to repair a rusty medicine chest shelf.
Step 1: Fig.1 shows the medicine cabinet had a rusted area on the bottom shelf and that the damage was caused by hair products. The solution is to use wood sandpaper to remove the rusted metal and paint buildup. Step 2: Fig.2 shows what is left after sanding is rusted metal and aluminum oxide sand. This sanding job is almost finished, with only a little rust showing.
