"Rust paint" - it's a thing; go with it!

I know when paint is working. My wife and her sisters have made fun of her dad's "rust paint" which was red/brown, and everything made of steel was painted with it.

I bought some "rust paint" over a year ago but it was green. Didn't know what I would use it for but you never know.

Then mum died, we cleared at the house and the only thing left was an old bench seat. Eventually I took it away from Mum's old place and I have it here now dismembered and half painted. So I was lucky that I had that "rust paint" that primes perfectly to old iron.

And the nerd in me just loves the way that the paint perfectly keys to that iron surface.

A few palings and then I have a bench seat which I could have bought for $100 but this is worth infinitely more.
