Decorative panels are brought back into use

0n6661Dorothea Restorations have shared the story of their restoration of decorative hand-made panels, which are ‘simple in design but showcase the skills of the blacksmith’ who made them.

According to the firm’s blog: “The origins of the panels are unknown but we believe they were commissioned for the property and removed for storage during renovation works. The panels were stored on the premises but not in use or maintained.

0n6660“The decorative panels were fully restored, removing all debris and surface rust with minimal abrasion, while ensuring that the surface is correctly prepared before applying a protective paint system. The panels were secured within the external frame without the need for fixings or welding, ensuring that the panels remain in their original condition. The mild-steel frame was constructed around the frame as part of our trial work before being blast cleaned and a protective paint system applied (pictured left).”

Once fully painted, the gates were installed on-site at the property.
