his is the beginning of my kids’ “industrial/nature playroom” installation: a salvaged metal shelf and a piece of shipping frame. The shelf (now magnet board) was so rusty and dirty, I had to sand it and give it a good soap-and-water scrubbing, then give it a finishing touch with stainless steel cleaner. The shipping frame was in pretty much the same condition. It needed a lot of sanding and cleaning before I layered it with paints of different colors and sheen. The combination of the two pieces make a great magnet board and shelf for little collectibles. Perfect for kids of all ages.
