Old farm to new home!July 23rd, 2009 in member junk
Finally.....I was able to resize a couple of pictures for now. (Thanks again audlyenuf!)
The hitchpost now handrail was taken from an old farmers lot that is soon to be new subdivision as were the windows and sign now table. The hand rail was sanded like forever, black stain was applied to the groves and cracks and then wiped of. Colonial maple stain was then added with many coats of Poly.
The old windows were re-glassed with privacy glass, inexpensive hardware that was purchased in bulk from a hardware store that was closing was used to hang and close shutters...and voila privacy sutters for the upper deck. (A full milkbox X3 of assorted household hardware only cost $25.00.)
The shelf table was a family name sign made frome a cut sliver of an old, large tree., you know the kind that they carve or burn your name into it! Once it was sanded the same finish as above was applied. The natural curve of this piece fit purfectly on the sill ledge. And just because......if you look under the table the family name was left on.
