I purchased this item recently that required restoration. I love the style of this scale and how well it is made. This thing is bullet proof! It appears whoever tried to restore it before me used house paint and a brush. There were a lot of runs in the paint and I knew I could do better.
The first step was to strip the old paint off of this scale and then scrape off the black foot pad that is aged and cracking.
I chose to paint this scale two colors, black and evergreen. I also used a silver pinstripe to break up the colors.
After the black paint dried I taped off the black portion and painted the exposed area in evergreen. Once that was dry I then applied the silver pinstripe and attached the foot strips.
