I spent about 2 hours this morning cleaning up this solid brass and copper outdoor light fixture. Last year our hotel was renovated and these are the original fixtures we had outside 27 years ago. Yes, I had to clean 27 years of tarnish and grime off this baby, but just look how beautiful it turned out! There are glass inserts for each side, which are not in the picture and another piece that goes on the top that I have not yet cleaned. It will replace a smaller nondescript fixture on the deck. I can sit and admire my handiwork every summer morning while I drink my coffee. Can you tell I REALLY like this light?
Let the Basting Begin! - I am using my dining room table to baste this big one -- it's about 105 x 105 inches (king size). It's been a while since I've finished one this big.
