Found Fridays: Get to Work


I know it's Labor Day weekend, but someone has their work cut out for them when they snap up this wooden bench just sitting in the street awaiting a new owner.

How would you transform this castaway?

Headed to the beach for the long weekend!

  1. WOW!!! The possibilities are endless! Keep it classic: Gloss black or white with a B&W awning stripe fabric... Go global with Ikat... Or go RED with a graphic print (a newspaper print with some red headlines could be FUN!) Or even better: Paint your own pattern - cover in a drop cloth and paint a flag - American or Union Jack!

    LOVE IT! Great FIND Stan!!

  2. I'm such a pain in the neck, but this is what I would do. I would pass that by. Too big, too heavy, too much work, too ugly. The silk purse story comes to mind.
    Did anyone you know take it?

  3. Without the padding it would be the perfect hutch in a rustic laundry room!

  4. Can you say - Hell yeah? I'd be all over that piece!!

  5. White paint with a bright graphic print would make a lovely faux window seat. Or an entry-way storage bench. Or a comfy end-of-bed bench with pull out baskets underneath for storage. I say it's a keeper.
