Rust? In western Oregon? Piece of cake.
The following photos are a study of the iron fireplace grate that made it as far as our front porch (it weighs a ton). It originally came from my grandfather's home (if I have that correct). Our house has a gas fireplace and therefore can't provide a home for the grate. But I think it's acquired an interesting patina during its sojourn on the porch.
