How-to Workshop: Historic Brass Hardware
April 30, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Is your brass blah? Are your door knobs dull? Are your hinges hapless?
ASG is hosting a morning of demonstrations at our showroom on Huffman Street. This session focuses on removing paint or tarnish from old house hardware like mail slots, doorknobs, door hinges, window hardware and more. From the simple steel wool doorknob-polishing-in-front-of-the-tv technique, to warming it in the crockpot technique, to chemical paint removal, you are invited to learn some new do-it-yourself methods. Meet local professionals for hire who can do the work for you! Soon, your vintage metal will be gleaming! Join us, and it is free!
Architectural Salvage of Greensboro – Rescuers of Old House Parts, is hosting a demonstration on strip methods for old house parts. Our mission is to preserve and maintain historical – or just old – homes and buildings.
