Updating wrought iron porch columns
Ironically, the entire house was dated, but I loved the neighborhood and immediately had a vision.Over the course of 7 years we have taken down walls, gutted the kitchen and bathroom, tore up carpet, refinished floors, tiled, painted, decorated, cut down trees, put up a fence, and countless other projects (Check out our house tour).I have some big heavy duty C-clamps, I'll see if I can come up with something stiff enough to bend the steel back with. They've been painted recently, but need some style help.Yesterday I shared how we made and hung our very cool number sign as part of our porch makeover.Since the width of the original metal column was 10-1/2" inches wide, we used 12" wide cedar."G" cut the boards to fit and using clamps created the box.Upon seeing it, I knew that it did really dominate the cozy porch. This is how "G" spent some of his weekend, I on the on other hand spent it relocating a few plants, pulling weeds and doing what I love. Saturday morning (early) we were at my sisters installing her kitchen cabinets.My parents' front porch is surrounded by old medal posts that have undergone a lot of rust over the years, and this spring we noticed that at least one of the posts is no longer connected to the ground.
Of course it is hard to tell not seeing the rest of the house but assuming it is like your neighbors to some extent... Thanks for the suggestion on how to straighten the column. It's the most distracting part of the front of the house that keeps things from looking up to date.Send a Amazon e-gift card to [email protected] email: [email protected] THE PAYMENT: Send Instant delivery Email amazon gift card Instructions: The picture below explains what to do on the next page.On the next page enter the ABOVE email address, click "SET MY OWN" and amount as 20, your name, message( part of the question) and delivery date (now) and CHECKOUT. It is currently being re-fabricated to fit back in its original location. The old column used to have the leaf and scroll work all through the inside of the column.I had "G" remove it but alas that was years ago, before I started blogging, so no pictures showing how truly ugly it was.
