How to restore rusted cast iron wooden bench?

So my friend has a cast iron wooden bench that came with her apartment. We were thinking of restoring it, and were looking for some guidance!

Sorry I don't have a picture of it right now, but if you're wondering what type of bench I'm talking about, it's this one

I think I have an idea of how to replace the wooden boards, but it's the rusted cast iron I'm less familiar with.

I've did a little research, and what I've learned is that I can use a wire wheel attached to a drill to clean off the rust

But tutorials I've seen end up painting over the cast iron. I'd like to not do that?

So besides cleaning off the rust, what can I do to the cast iron metal to restore it? After getting rid of the rust, is there something I can do to help prevent future rusting? Is there something I can do to polish up the cast iron to make it look better?

Any advice would be appreciated!

Thank you 🙂
