The month of April saw me involved with getting The Castle repainted, all the wooden bits of course.
I had a painter do all the high house area and I did the stairs and ancillarys.
I cannot show you the stairs as they are not wood.
The letter box was looking a bit jaded as well so I was going to buy a new Number two to modernise it.
But when I saw the cost of them I wondered if they had been made from gold, this got me thinking, and I decided to gold leaf the existing No 2 as a work around.
The backing piece for the No 2 is wood and I thought I could improve on itas well.
Prior to make over.
The letter box itself is not wood so dont look at it.
I replaced the backing piece with a piece of Jarrah so I am trying to sneak the blog in as being wood.
So only look at the backing material and not the gold No 2 or gold catch or even the Gold leaf pole top!
After the make over.
I was so impressed with the result of the wood I decided to do a make over on “The Castle” sign as well.
Again these letters are metal and plastic so dont look at them, focus on the wooden backing board.
How I did it.
Before the painter and gold leafer arrived.
The final result.
