While the Hubs is Away, the Wife Will Play...

I picked up this little beauty at my local thrift stare for $25.00. I needed a project while the hubs will be gone for a week.
I started by removing the hardware
Solid brass. I think
Blah-uck. I scrubbed the with an abrasive cleanser and steel wool, they were gross!
All clean now
I got so excited to use a new product, that I forgot to take progress photos.. I sanded everywhere I was to stain. And painted the rest with Little Billy Goat Paint "prize winner" after 2 coats paint, stain and 2 coats sealer, this is my finished product.. Just in time for the hubs to get home, loader up and get it down to the shop.
