Maybe redo your first post so it is understandable.
What is a "steel suit hunger?"

In the US that's a simple coat tree, dime a dozen.
If in the US I would have suggested having it powder coated.
One of the many reasons I wish that would require a location when posting.
At least 99.9% of the people posting here are from the US and have no idea what products are avalible there.

Joecaption - this is the same OP who posted about the steel kitchen rack that hung off the tile. Lagos, Nigeria. Must not have the help there.

No, it is not a crime. The guys trying to help you have said that it's hard when this is a US based chatroom and they don't know what options you have there, codes, laws or materials. When I lived in Zaire, we used South Africa as a source of information.

If you have access to RustOleum products over there, this is good for any kind of metal. It's a high gloss black that can be brushed on. Two coats. Set it out in the warmth of the sun and you will get a baked on finish.

The RustOleum is an oil-based product. Using a paint brush, you can brush it onto the metal. The first coat will not cover completely. Let it dry for 24 hours. Setting it out in the sun (I think it's pretty warm where you are) will heat up the metal and create a good drying process. After 24 hours, give it another coat using your brush. After that 2nd coat, it will produce a nice, hard, glossy finish. Hopefully, you have access to Rustoleum type products in Nigeria.

Thank you all, unfortunately rustoleum oil paint is not currently available in Nigeria except for the spray type which I don't think it can really work for the above image, I will like suggestion of more paint type that can give the above finish look.
