I bought this bird feeder on clearance last year at Target. I loved having it in my yard and the birds loved it, but it did not weather well. Serious rust.
Here’s a close-up of the rusted nastiness. Ick.
While strolling through Wal Mart, I came across Rust-oleum Hammered Copper spray paint. The label says you can paint right over rust, so I thought it was worth a try. The results are gorgeous. It really does look like a hammered copper finish. I’m amazed. It completely obliterated the rust. It looks even better than when it was new.
The birds are happy again and so am I!
