Wood Heater Paint

by John

Some readers opine that I should paint my workshop wood heater.

Well, I will probably not do that.  Reasons~

1. I quite like that rusty brown look

2. I have a lazy streak

3. I dont have the stove paint, although a friend has offered some free.

4. With use it is changing colour to a darker brown.  Interesting.  Is it a chemical reaction of the rust to heat?

5. Would paint stand up to these temperatures?
