Ron Sommerville of Bridgeton, New Jersey, has a 200-year-old farmhouse. He wanted his kitchen to be modern, but not look out of place with the house.
Ron's review says “I removed the hardware protective finish with a wire brush and darkened the hardware using your brass darkening solution for an aged, distressed look. I put a stainless steel pin through the latch to make it solid. I now have an “old” icebox in my 200 year old farmhouse.”
I just love the creativity and ingenuity of woodworkers! Thanks for sharing, Ron!
