Red is Forever
After dropping off a finished table for some friends, we ventured out in the backyard of their new home. I happened to lay eyes on this very unique and antique bench. The lines and curves on it captured my attention and drew me in for a closer look.
The outside elements had taken their toll on her but all the charm and function were still very evident. The seat was splintering off the bench but otherwise in good shape. Our friend Barbara offered it to us because she wasn't going to use it any longer and was planning on tossing it. What a wonderful gesture on her part! Knowing they had faith that I could make something of it gave me the motivation to do my best.
I think the end result is truly a testament to the quality of the piece and how well it was originally crafted. Red is the color of passion which is a perfect way to describe why I reimagine and revitalize forgotten treasure.
