Step 1: How it all began
Step 2: Materials required
In terms of supplies I used sandpaper, 14 gauge wire, wire nuts, and spray paint. The tools used were a soldering gun (and solder), drill & bits, screwdrivers, and a metal cutting saw.
Step 3: Dis-assembly & rust removal
The first thing I tackled was to remove the heavy rust from inside the cabinet. The cabinet's insides are not visible when the cabinet is assembled, but I wanted to stop the rusting. I aggressively wire brushed the insides of each piece of the cabinet until all loose rust was gone (photo 3).
