Tarnished Metal Brought Back to Life

I found this antique light switch cover on kijiji and thought it would be a nice finishing touch to our newly wallpapered living room. Only problem was it needed a little restoration.


I could tell that it was a real beauty in it’s day (1967) but the years had taken a toll. So I grabbed some Brasso and an old toothbrush and got to work!


I left it on for about 30 minutes and wiped it off with a rag…

Now it’s just like new! and ready for the wall :)
