Real Life Repair Shop

If you're passing through Eaton, you can't help but notice their newly restored village sign. It's all thanks to the wonderful research, repair and restoration skills of our DT Technician, Mr Naish, who was commissioned to bring the sign back to its original condition.

Mr Naish carefully stripped back the layers of paint, whilst taking careful note of the original colours used. He repaired the sign, reinforcing it and reconstructing parts that had been lost over time, including one of the horse's ears and its mane.

After priming, he replicated the original paint tones as closely as possible and then sealed with a few layers of weatherproof varnish.

The results really do speak for themselves and will be enjoyed by villagers and passers by for many more years to come.
