It is possible that if exposed to high humidity these legs can also begin to oxidize slightly indoors, showing signs of light surface rust. If you see this, simply wipe away rust spots using a Scotch Bright Pad and apply a natural protectant such as beeswax or linseed oil. If you would like to protect your legs from any rusting, we suggest either selecting our painted or clear coat option or painting your hairpins yourself using a Rust-Oleum paint in your desired colour.Please note that hairpins left in their raw steel form may have minor variations between pieces including scratches, slight pitting and mill scale which adds to the unique, industrial appearance of each leg. **1/4 wood screws not included**Our shop is located in Brighton, Ontario and is equipped with all of the essential tools needed to create complex pieces. Please feel free to contact us for any custom metal/wood projects.
