Buster's Chaise Lounge

One of my early foray's into the intersection of interior design and reclamation was 'Buster's Chaise".  This fifties fantasy began life as possibly the ugliest sofa known to man that I literally found on the sidewalk.
Buster's Chaise, modeled expertly by Buster
Its Herculon dressed pine frame was a marvel of bad and disassembling it was an adventure in seeds and stems, but once rendered down to wood and no-sag (or "S") springs, and the wood reconfigured, this one of a kind room changer cost close to nothing.

I don't have a picture of the actual sofa I used, but this is darn close.
I was proud of this piece, Its unusual look and storied history started many a conversations, but no one loved it like Buster.
