Q: I purchased a metal floor lamp which, as you can see, is totally coated in rust. I am not sure how to go about returning it to its original state, in part because I'm not sure what its original state would have been. If anyone could tell me anything about it, I'd be grateful — especially what sort of finish it should have, and an eco-friendly way to achieve it, if such a thing exists.
