I Got A Garage FULL Of Projects. It's Getting A Little Embarrassing...Buuuuuttttt, It Keeps Me Busy. Status: Little Peek At One Of 'Em.
The good news is that my "projects" come cheap. This one was free...except for all the work to get it home. Frank (the Focus Wagon) is a real trouper and can ingest some pretty sizable cargo but he already was packing a score when I had to get this home too.
Yeah, I got this for FREE when I picked up the Adrian Pearsall chair a while back! Bonus. The
seller of the chair just wanted to be rid of it. She was going to fix it up herself but figured she'd
never get around to it. She helped me carry it down and out of her apartment and "hide" it in
the back yard until I could come get it after I got off work. So I still had the chair in the back of
Frank. The only place for this was on top. Frank has a roof rack but take a gooooood look at
the shape of this sofa frame. There isn't a flat surface to lay it on! It Was a challenge but I got it
all tied down and safely home.
I'm so digging the shape of the sofa. It could use a little refinish work but I don't think leaving it
as is would be a sin either. I've got some cushion material for it already but I gotta cut it to
shape and upholster it. The sofa is missing a few of the spring suspension things so I'll have to
deal with that as well.
You can see that some repair work has already been done. It may not be subtle but it is sturdy.
This is gonna make some sweet seating soon enough!
