It’s All in the Details!

Brian Sullivan, owner of A Master’s Touch refinishing and restoration business in Monroe, recently donated his shop’s services to restore the interior stairway handrails at the Wagner Performing Arts Center. 

These rails, in the stairway on the right (east) side of the stage, were… well… just look at the “before” picture.  Enough said! 

Brian and his crew peeled away the many layers of ugly paint to reveal the natural beauty of the old fir handrails, which are now clear coated in a beautiful, durable satin finish. (He even stripped the paint from the original mounting brackets to restore them to their original condition.)

We can’t say for sure, but it’s very likely that the wood came from the old Wagner mill.  “You couldn’t replace wood like this today,” said Brian when we brought the railings to him.  We thank Brian for his donation!
