My BIG PROJECT! I have been working on this for the past 8 years! I always gave up cuz had 130 years of patina on it. It was so tarnished it looked black and darker than the paint on the door around it. And of course when I gave up, it went back to being tarnished... But today, I didn't give up and worked for over 2 hours.... heres the resultYAY! I am pleased with the result! Well worth the effort!
