Milnar Organ 


First Baptist Church
Shelbyville, TN

Project Completed 2016


     First Baptist Church Shelbyville just completed a renovation of their sanctuary. We first removed the console and façade pipes so the contractor could enlarge the stage for the choir and pulpit. The console had been painted white and the church members decided they wanted it changed back to the original natural color. We took the console and façade pipes back to our shop facility to make the alterations. The console was taken apart before starting the process of removing the white paint. It took many hours to remove the paint without damaging the beautiful carvings on the case. The pipes were sanded by hand and dents removed before spraying a new coat of silver/gray paint. Everyone was pleased with the results of our work to the console and facade.
