Q.
We have two little glass.
Cover the coffee table with a brass base that has been stored for many years.
We want to copy them with chrome or wire steel, but we can\'t find a similar one.
Is there a way to have the metal dip to change the look? Washington A.
The two places where Chrome is made in Rockville are Chevrolet Chase plating and polishing (301-230-7686, www.
Chevrolet plating. com)
Electroplating and polishing of Kensington Subway (301-493-4009 or 800-938-5811, www. metroplating. com).
However, whether this is the best approach depends on how big the base is and how much you are willing to spend.
Richard Seisen of Chevrolet chase plating explained that because Washington is a \"paper town\", industrial-
The demand for large-scale equipment is not large, and a large piece may not be plated nearby.
However, he can do it if the parts can be disassembled.
He estimated that it would cost $400 to $600 based on what was the size of a coffee table.
Sisson suggests that you can have base powder for about the third cost --coated.
This is a process in which the surface continues to exist as tiny dry particles that are temporarily given a slight positive charge.
They stick to the metal because it has a slight negative charge at the same time.
Then bake on it, which makes it very durable.
One company that provides this service is Lorton\'s extreme powder coating (703-339-8233, www.
Extremely powder coating. com).
Or, for about $25, you can draw the base yourself.
Today, the paint and hardware stores store an amazing array of paint paints, including silver metal paint, that can keep you up close
Chrome looks enough.
For the look of the drawing Steel, the experiment of painting the pipe with a brushon, water-
Paint based on metal, such as paint from modern masters. (
The company\'s website lists a large number of suppliers in the region. )
If you test on a galvanized tube, wipe the surface with vinegar first, rinse it clean and dry.
Brush on a primer suitable for a smooth surface, such as bull eye 1-2-3 from Zinsser.
Then apply opaque metallic paint.
Or, for more brushes
Steel look, apply matte black paint on the primer, dry, then add a gray half of two layers
Opaque metallic paint
When the paint is dry, use super-
Fine steel wool adds the look of the brush.
Do the same thing on brass if you like the look, but don\'t wipe the vinegar.
If you do decide to paint and discover rust in places where brass is plated and worn, first treat rust spots with a primer that changes rust chemically and creates a stable foundation for paint. Bondo, Mar-Hyde and Rust-
Felt is a primer for rust treatment.

8 How to list, answered the question about cleaning up an old and sticky table: I hate to be a pest, but your article reminds me of an old saying, everything looks like a nail to a hammer.
If you go to a company that specializes in patching, you will be advised to strip.
Maybe you know what happens next.
After stripping, all the features of the old finish are removed, the wood is chiseled by the peeling, the joints are relaxed, and sometimes the new face is painted with shiny paint on the gray wood.
I have recovered a lot.
Historical furniture for the past 40 years.
Below is what I will do with the material you can find in the paint or hardware store.
Mix a pint of liquid first-
The third one, one.
A third white vinegar and
The third cook flax seed oil.
Buy a box of pumice powder.
Make a cushion with a soft piece of cotton, such as T-
Shirt, pour some liquid on one shallow plate and some pumice on the other.
Dip the mat into the liquid, then into the pumice and rub the table top with grain.
When cleaning agents and pumice remove old dirt, wax and oil, the sewage slurry will appear soon.
Clean with another rag and clean like a towel with a clean rag.
If you are careful, you can replace pumice with very fine steel wool, but a better alternative is the quality plastic \"scrubbie\" like you used to wash dishes \".
After polishing, let the surface dry for about a day and then buffer again.
Then, for further protection, wax the table with hard Brazilian palm leavestype paste wax.

The time method can work or have gorgeous results.
But these ingredients are not the safest.
Work in well ventilated condition, make sure nothing in the area will spark and protect your hands by wearing heavy clothes
Duty gloves for anti-fat.
If the label is not clear, please call the glove manufacturer for inspection when the pine grease passes through many common glove materials.
Also, be very careful to hang all the cloth and scrub pads on the outside completely dry before handling.
