I think I might have found a treasure this morning. What do you think?
It's hard waste collection in Hawthorn at the moment, which means people put their unwanted items in front of their houses for collection by council. Usually it's a lot of old junk like broken TVs, faded children's play equipment and the like.
Call me crazy, but I think this has potential. It's sturdy, a cute size, and would look right at home on the shady deck of a beach house (not that we have one of those). Can you picture it? Painted a lighter shade with some fabulous upholstered cushion on it.
I found myself standing next to this piece with the boot of my car open, thinking, "Should I, or shouldn't I". I thought, "No, the last thing I need is a project like this." And then I thought, "Salvation Jane wouldn't leave a find like this on the sidewalk." I drove away, then immediately turned around and came back for it. It's now in our garage and I'm wondering who can do it up for me (because it's not a job I feel I could do justice to).
The question is, what colour should I paint it? I'd love your thoughts.
