    Hi, Annd,
    Danny says, “Yes, you certainly can and all you’ll need to do is lightly sand, wipe down all dust and then apply the new color. Good luck!”

    Can I repaint wrought iron patio furniture currently a glossy finish with a satin finish? Same color, just from glossy to satin. Do I need to prep in any way?

    Hi! I have a metal star for that hangs outside on the front of my house. It has rusted over the years. Do I need to sand off as much of the rust that I can before spray painting with the rustoleum spray paint?

    Would this work on fireplace doors?? I would like the oil rubbed bronze but can’t find in a high heat paint. Each time I google night heat paint the universal paint comes up.

    My old toilet seat is composit and no longer made. What should I use to repaint,including primer. I assume the original paint was an oil base, since it was made in 1980.

    I have a metal bed that I need to touch up in some areas. Everything I use seems to rub off with touch. Will this paint stay on?

    I have sprayed my old slightly rusting steel 9×13 baking pan with Rustoleum primer and Rustoleum glossy white paint. Will it be safe to use this pan at all for food? Just for storing food? For baking food? The pan is very nice otherwise and has a nice plastic lid.

    I spray painted the towel holders in the bathroom with the bronze paint. I want to paint the faucet. Will it require some kind of sealant since it’s in a wet/ humid environment and if so which do you recommend.

    Hello, I want to paint my brand new refrig door in a dark cherry red to match the rest of my kitchen. Unfortunately no retailer in the entire city of 10,000,000 population carries this colour in appliance paint. And typical for the French overwhelming customer service they will not order it either. Can I use Rust olenum universal for my project. It will ruin my frig if it does not adhere. So I want to be sure first. My new frig is delivered in one week. Thank you for your advise.
    Kind regards,
    L. Haseltine

    Hello, I have a sandstone surround that my stove sits on. Can I use Rustoleum all surface paint and primer in one to cover over the sandstone?? It says on the tin about using on brickwork but I was unsure about using this on natural stone?

    Regards

    I want to spray my shower caddy which has completely rusted.
    Do I need to remove the old rust prior to painting it?
    I was planning to use Rust-Oleum Universal Aged Metallics in nickel.
