This is an old fence post from a farm that is about 140 years old – and some old door latches and knobs – it is a coat/hat rack. I cleaned the timber with a wire brush, then hand sanded it, I soaked the door latches in a molasses slurry and cleaned and then coated them with a metal clear coat. The timber was then coated with an oil based clear coat – as I thought it will stand up to being outdoors (like it hasn’t already LOL) and I used decking nails – you know – the ones that twist? to attach them – I sold this one on the weekend – it was so exciting :) thanks again for your help guys!
