In my many years of street finds in NYC, I never imagined that it could actually turn into an obsession. I don’t quite know what’s come over me, but I find great pleasure in not only finding valuable items, but also creating beauty in what was once half destroyed. About a month ago, I discovered a small gold mine of discarded objects that I felt had great potential. In the next few posts, I will document the transformation of these and hopefully use them for another 10 – 20 years!
So there we were with the scooter and all, stumbling across this small treasure trove of discarded objects on Columbus Ave. A large mirror, a wooden slat bar stool, some random plywood pieces… Trying to load everything up and get home with it all was challenging enough, but now, where to put it? Here’s a photo of how we got everything home – luckily not too far away.
It’s amazing what one can do when filled with determination 🙂
Now onto the refinishing!
