Step 2...of Restoration Project

Step 2:

Brings us to taking the panel apart. Finding pieces in the pile of discarded panels on the floor


Cleaning the intact piece of the old cement and years of dirt.
Then, placing it into the space on the new pattern.

This picture shows:
1 piece that was retrieved from the discard pile and cut to fit.
And 2 pieces that were intact and just cleaned...1 gold piece and the turquoise piece along the border.

This will take me a few weeks to get through. Good news is the discard pile has a good selection of replacement parts.
The old cement seems easy to clean far.

Go Mary! Looks like you've just started a very big project! I like the bubbles in the golden glass! :-)
