Use your wire brush to remove flaking paint and loose pieces of rust.
Use a random orbit palm sander to remove the rest of the rust and any other small flakes of paint, starting with a coarse grit like 60 or 80 to remove the large stuff, then switching to a medium grit like 120 or 150 to smooth the transition between the paint and the rust spots.
Wipe down the furniture with a wet sponge to remove any dust and dirt.
Let the furniture completely air dry before painting.
Spray each piece of furniture using a back and forth motion, following the lines of the chair or table and holding the can about 6″ to 10″ away.
Wait 30-45 minutes for the first coat to dry, then do a second coat.
