Entrance sign painted, little more work needed

Marie and Buddy Catterton took on the task of restoring our entrance sign.  Here’s the way the sign looked before they started work.

This photo does not show the extensive termite damage on the rear of the sign, nor does it show the real condition of the paint — peeling, dried, flaking off.

And here’s the sign as of April 19 after weeks of scraping, filling, and painting.  They will apply two coats of sealer front and back, let the sealer dry, then they will re-mount the sign on the posts at the entrance to the neighborhood.

Thank you, Marie and Buddy!!
