Mild steel in PB shuttered lanterns

[ Edited ]

Mild steel = steel containing a small percentage of carbon, strong and tough but not readily tempered.

 

I love the beachy look of these shuttered lanterns from Pottery Barn and find they are made of mango wood and "mild" steel.  

 

Too bad they wouldn't do for outdoor use as I am reading that mild steel rusts easily.

I really like those! But I need another lantern like I need a hole in the head.

Beautiful!

 

I think they could go rustic as well as beachy. I would use it on a covered patio area where rain doesn't get in.

I would use those on my front porch.
