I have this bell form my grandmothers house that would look good on my new shed. I want to refurbish it but I don’t want to take away from any potential value. Can I sandblast it, or just sand and paint it? What color was this bell originally? I always remembered this bell matching the grey garage they had. Any help[ would be much appreciated. Thank you
Its hard to say what color it was originally, especially without pictures or a brand/size. As far as restoring it, sand blasting is the best way to get all the rust off. Then use a rust resistant primer or a paint that is designed to seal and protect against rust.
