Proud Henry @ Fortitude Valley

Proud Henry Wine Bar and Ginoteca in Fortitude Valley has recently completed a rebranding and facelift, with the addition of recycled timber doors and windows and a complete colour change to the exterior façade.

This is a fantastic example of the recycle reuse principle, both sets of bi fold front wall widows and the double half glass entry doors were all bought online on a classified website, providing beautiful timber character, and saving a bundle on materials.

Second hand never has to mean second best, these doors and windows needed minimal work before their inclusion, a light sand and seal and because they face such a high traffic road and get all afternoon sun, an oil based sealant was chosen for durability and finish.

The dark walnut colour of the coating creates a striking contrast, owner Darren had previously painted the exterior façade Peacock Blue, and the rich walnut coating helps the timbers stand out, and ties in with the grand theme of the space.
