The hosts of De Oude Huize Yard shares their triumphs and heartaches while renovating their NEST
|An old Victoria cast iron bath that we managed to find in a small town in our country at a bargaining price. We had it transported via our next door neighbour whom is the proud owner of a transport company.|
|Sanding on the outside was essential.|
|Falcon feet were essential and lucky we were to found four from the same owner.|
|The inside of the bath was "not so nice" we had to scrub and sand it to remove all the limestone residues had to be removed.|
|The sanding and cleaning has been completed and now it was time for Hennie to do his magic.|
|A Plascon Latex nr 8 was used for the re-enamel process. |
What a time consuming process.
Spray painting was essential for a smooth finish.
There is only a 24 hour window between layers.
|Next up was the sexy Falcon legs. |
My apologies for the upside down photo.
|After three days it was time for the outside of the bath. |
I have dreamed of a soft "khaki" colour on the outside with a little emblem but
when you live in a small town you have to adapt.
The final decision was white all over.
|The complete project. |
Not to shabby if I must say so myself.
Thank you for all the wonderful friends whom are sharing this story!!!
