Midcentury Mod Bench Restoration

I love hearing stories about the lengths you go to rescue roadkill–it proves I’m not alone in what I’ll do to bring home trash!  Eve of Eve of Reduction saw this retro bench sticking out of a dumpster as she rode past on her bike.  She came back with her son, and together they carried it on foot for over a mile through their neighborhood.  That’s dedication.

Once she’d brought the bench home, Eve turned her attention to restoring it to it’s once glam self.  She took the time to clean it, polish it, and repair structural damage.  Then, she reupholstered the sagging cushions with a groovy fabric that matched the retro turquoise vinyl perfectly!  I think this bench is ready to make a guest appearance on Mad Men, don’t you?
