Original Shop Counter Restoration

Posted on: | Cat: Custom Paint Work

Exciting makeover news! Last week we spent 2 days at our customer's house in Kent, which was originally an old shop in 1735! This was one of the original shop counters from the house, which, until recently, had been sat in an outbuilding out of use. The new owners of the house saw the potential to restore and re-use these magnificent items, this one in particular now being used as a fabulous storage and display unit in their lounge! We removed all the original iron handles and re-used any that didn't break, simply cleaning up with wire wool and waxing. We completed some basic carpentry on the frame of the counter and treated for woodworm and then painted in Annie Sloan Country Grey and aged with dark wax. We have sourced some original iron handles to replace the missing ones and will be heading back in the coming months to complete the 2nd counter which will form part of the new kitchen ... we can't wait!
