KC Restoration refinished these aluminum planters, cleaning up the metal, removing scratches, and switching the mirror finish to a satin finish. The water-like effect of the new graining really makes the metal pop!
Have you found that favorite look you want to emulate in your own space from all the great homes at this year’s Spring Parade of Homes? We saw some great metal accent doors, rails, and pieces created by some talented metal fabricators. We’re lucky to work with these local artisans to put custom finishing touches and patina on their pieces that are nothing short of artwork.
These two pieces crafted by Metal One for a Prairie Village residence and a Loose Park area home feature hot and cold rolled steel formed into fireplace panels of grandeur and the elegant curves of handrail tops and spindle posts. Metal One partnered with KC Restoration to finish off the beautiful pieces with a darkened patina and satin finish clear coat. Both projects to be proud of!
Can you believe it’s already May!? 2019 has flown by, but before we get to the halfway point in the year, KC Restoration hopes you’ll join us this month in supporting the Kansas City MLB Urban Youth Academy. From May1-31, we will be gathering new baseball gear to donate to the academy. Whether it is just you bringing a glove or bat or you’d like our team to bring by a donations collection box for your entire office, we hope you’ll step up to the plate too. We would also be happy to accept cash or gift card donations from sports stores to purchase the gear to donate to the baseball drive. And make sure to check back in the coming week to find out about KC Restoration matching financial donations at the Kansas City Commercial Real Estate Expo one week from today in Union Station.
KC Restoration’s team recently donated our services at a local memorial honoring Kansas City firefighters. The 30 41 Firefighters Memorial near US 71 and 87th St honors the six firefighters who gave the ultimate sacrifice when responding to a fire in November 1988. Technicians refinished bronze plaques in and around benches and the flagpole at the memorial. We were especially touched by the “Fireman’s Prayer” on one of the plaques:
A FIREMAN’S PRAYER
When I am called to duty, God,
Wherever flames may rage,
Give me strength to save some life
Whatever be its age,
Help me embrace a little child
Before it is too late
Or save an older person from
The horror of my fate.
Enable me to be alert and hear the weakest shout
And quickly and efficiently to put the fire out
I want to fill my calling and
To give the best in me
To guard my every neighbor and
Protect his property
And if according to my fate
I am to lose my life,
Please bless with Your protective hand,
My children and my wife.
Our thanks to all our local firefighters and their families who sacrifice and put their lives on the line to protect the rest of us. We’re glad our refinishing services could lend themselves to this meaningful memorial.
