Besides digging out the rock at the base and cleaning as much mud and rust from from the iron, I was able to dab black Rustoleum paint “under” at least the top two crossbars this time. The labor intensive project has me re-thinking the rust BackporchRailing210730appearing on our front or back porch railing; perhaps I can just remove them and go without?
