One of the shelves in my kitchen had got into pretty bad shape over a long term of usage.
This shelf which consists of two 2'X1' galvanized iron horizontal pieces had been used to keep hot, oily and wet pans. As a result there was accumulation of oil and severe rusting leading to a sizable opening in the top piece.
I have now reconditioned this shelf by cleaning it up and tiling the horizontal members with some left over ceramic tiles.
The reconditioned tiled shelf should now be able to handle the hot pans and also be easier to maintain.
