Staircase Railing in Pacific Heights, San Francisco

At this Pacific Heights home, we gave the old, rusty staircase railing new life by sanding it down, chemically treating it and oxidizing it to give it a Dark Antique Patina. The patina was sealed with wax that was applied by hand and buffed to a semi-gloss finish.

Antique Brass Door Hardware

The door hardware pictured below was severely tarnished and coated with paint. We were able to strip the paint, remove the tarnish and apply an aged brass patina.



Restored Motorcycle Parts

We were able to take these old motorcycle parts and bring them back to life with a polished aluminum finish.

Old Brass Bed Frame Made New Again

After being hidden away in a garage for years, this bed frame was showing its age with patches of rust and corrosion.  But we were able to treat and polish it back to life and give it a nice, fresh brass finish.
