Q: Hi all! I've googled around and found very little help, so I thought you all might have knowledge on this topic. I have a security gate on my kitchen window that looks exactly like this one on Manhattan Nest. It's a little rusty and grimy, but otherwise in good condition, so I don't want to replace it. I would, however, like to paint it so it looks nicer. I've found tutorials on painting metal, but nothing on painting accordion-style metal gates, which I imagine is more complicated. Anyone tried to do this? Thanks! -Sent by Brooke

Editor: Interesting! Readers, do you think it would work to paint a folding security gate? If not, what other sprucing options do you recommend? Thanks!
