Serina sent us an email: I am looking for advice for how to refinish/paint a metal locker unit. I just acquired a fabulous vintage locker cabinet that was salvaged from a local middle school. There is quite a bit of writing on it in all sorts of pen, and the paint is dingy.

I would love to have AT readers give me some advice on how to sand, prime and paint (brand/finish/brush-on/spray??) my great new piece! Thanks!

Any tips for Serina? Let her know in the comments...
