is it possible to wrap wrought iron porch columns?
I have a house built in the late 60s with wrought-iron porch columns for the porch that covers most of the front of the house (which is somewhere between a bungalow, a farmhouse, and cape style).
I'd like to replace the columns, but they are somehow attached to the beam at the front of the front porch, since the square tubing extends up past the aluminum wrap into the beam.
I thought I could wrap the existing wrought iron rather than try to remove them, but if I made square columns this way, I'd end up with something like 11" x11" columns, which is probably too large (the porch itself is about 6' x 50').
Would it look odd to have rectangular rather than square columns? I'm thinking of something like 7" x11". Any opinions?
