In a year that marks 100 years from the end of the first World War, we Americans remember the hardships, sacrifices, and travails that veterans over the years and around the globe have dedicated to bringing peace and protection. We at KC Restoration are proud to have such heroes in our midst and thank you for all you have done for our country, families, and each one of us.
When KC Restoration’s technicians complete their refinishing after business hours, they often get to see another beautiful side of the metro. This last week, they got to see the beautiful “Peace and Remembrance” light show on the north facade of the Liberty Memorial after completing work on site, applying patina to elevator entrances. You can check out the rich dark tones of the patina in these photos, and the view they got to enjoy of some of the over 5000 poppies lighting up the memorial through this Sunday and Veterans Day. The National World War I Museum and Memorial will be commemorating the 100th anniversary of the war’s armistice with a ceremony Sunday morning and a tolling of the bells of peace at 11am, exactly 100 years after fighting ceased in Europe. This weekend, veterans and active-duty military personnel will receive free admission to the museum, and for everyone else, tickets can be purchased online for half price for this weekend’s sober remembrance.
We’re excited to get to show off some exciting new patina work KC Restoration completed in Lenexa’s gorgeously renovated Canyon Farms Golf Club. Countertops and the exterior patio bar received variated rust pattern patinas you can check out in these photos, as you can the effects of the hot patina process applied to the wall panels surrounding the fireplace and curving above the Silo Modern Farmhouse’s seating area. We’re proud to have gotten to work on these steel pieces fabricated by the talented team at Metal 1. We’re excited to see the beautiful combinations of metal, stone, and wood pulled together by Mcpherson Contractors, as well as the combination of rustic and sleek that can’t help but be met with pleasing approval by golfers and Silo visitors alike.
There’s only 3 day left in KC Restoration’s autumn toy drive for Children’s Mercy. Our thanks goes out to all who have donated to bring a smile to the faces of young patients, and for any of our partners out there who still have donations needing to be picked up or to arrange a time for a toy drive box pick-up, make sure to let our team know. We’ll be happy to swing by in the week ahead!
