Heritage hardware

The guy who helped make our old windows functional at Yukon Street told me how to restore the old window hardware.  Last night I boiled these paint covered pieces in TSP and it was so effective in removing the old paint.  I pulled each one out of the pan with tongs and scrubbed it with a wire brush and voila.

From this

in less than an hour. 

Won't these look nice on our restored windows?


  1. Beautiful !

    can you believe people painted over these lovely pieces ? What were they thinking.

    cheers, parsnip

  2. I love that they came out so well...gorgeous!


I really appreciate your comments.
