I rescued the wrought iron from the scrap metal pile at the farm. They were very rusted, and the wood slats were missing. I used steel brushes to get the rust off, then applied Penetrol which is a rust converter. The patina is beautiful so I didn’t paint the metal, but a clear finish would be appropriate. The wood slats were cut from some old one inch rough cut oak, which I didn’t bother to plane to give it a more antique look.
