I didn’t make these, but I made them look like new. When I got them, they were rusty and the four little peg feet on the back had crumbling plastic covers. My favorite gas station attendant helped me get these sand-blasted and then I spray painted them with a self-etching primer, followed by shiny black. I luf them and they live on my kitchen island now (instead of in that box of broken things waiting to be fixed). Picture on the left is with flash, right is without. I couldn’t decide which I liked better, so I am using both.
