Girl Scouts Katherine Payne Lodge Sign Restoration
Some old signs on an old building. They didn’t want new signs, only restored signs. The main sign was a couple of boards cut to look like broken boards and joined together with rusty corrugated fasteners. The other was had cut letters on a capsule shaped board. A couple of the letters were missing or broken.
Cleaning and prepping the signs was actually an adventure. Both signs had been painted several times, even with new painted lettering – once with ‘Katherine’ spelled differently. I confirmed the proper spelling before continuing.
Both signs, and the individual letters, were cleaned, filled, sanded, painted and relettered. They still have the hand-made look, because they were certainly hand-made. But now they have several more years of life and should see plenty more girl scouts pass by.
