Golden Gate Bench
Someone discarded this bench on Golden Gate Ave in San Francisco as broken and beyond repair. We saw differently. Originally, it had deteriorating yellow velvet fabric, faux wood grain paint on the carved stretchers and legs, and was being held together by hardware store brackets and wood screws.
After, it has new life with a deep blue paint, combination steel and wood legs, and a white faux leather seat. We were able to salvage the padding, the buttons, all the carved pieces, and we got rid of the hardware store DIY.
