Metal Locker

Tools and Supplies:
Metal brush and Scraper
Spray Paint primer
Moving pad
Painting tarp

My service company was given a old used up paint locker. My last metal shelf locker was too small for all the paint cans and adhesive that was used in my business. This post shows that even a used up metal locker with the proper care can be used again.

This post shows the five steps to paint a rattan dining room table.
Step 1: Fig.1 shows the metal paint locker. Fig.2 and fig.3 shows the box has a rusted bottom.

Step 2: Fig.4 through fig.6 shows the use of the wire brush and scraper to remove most of the bad rust areas on the bottom of the cabinet.

Step 3: While the cabinet is on the car the bottom of the cabinet is primed. Fig.7 and fig.8 shows that the bottom of the cabinet is painted in white Kilz™  primer.

Step 4: Fig.9 through fig.11 shows the cabinet has been removed from the car and a moving truck is used to  move the cabinet from the car to the garage area. Fig.12 shows the cabinet is being filled with paint supplies.
