This sign was refurbished by StudioVO. The paint had chipped and faded and there was quite a bit of water seepage. The piece was carved from a beautiful piece of mahogany and was far too nice to discard. The old paint was carefully removed and the carving enhanced a bit. The piece was then dried thoroughly, the cracks were filled, the sign was primed and hand painted. The finished work is as good as new and the cost was far less to the client then a total remake would have been.
