Things are drying out here at Henbogle, and while they do, we found some indoor projects to work on. Ages ago, Dan had read a tip about removing paint from metal hardware by heating it overnight in a crock pot.
Recently at the recycling center's swap shop, we found a free "Crockette," so yesterday seemed like a good time to test this theory. We have some hardware to the bathroom door. Someday we will re-hang the door and add the hardware so that it will close properly; we are now one step closer at least. Dan filled the Crockette with water, and 24 hours later, the old paint was easily removed, revealing lovely old brass hardware. A little polishing and it is beautiful!
