Look what the cat dragged in!....again...

So it's my latest purchase from a local re-sale shop for the new "family room/man cave" in the basement.  Not quite sure what to do with it yet, but what can I say...it speaks to me!  Good lines, clean, sturdy, classic design and the very best part...$30.00.  I know right?!
I kind of like the caned?/weaved? side panels, but I don't care for the fabric.  Though I dig a touch of orange, for me, it's overkill. 
All the cushion wedges are removable so it could an open bench.  It's big!  It's the size of a twin mattress so wouldn't it be cool in an open concept living area?....ahem, which I do not have. Haha.
All of the cushion wedges are zippered covers so if I could make new ones in a different fabric, I image it to turn out something like this.  I'm sure I'll get right on that (wink wink).
It's been moved into the basement and kid tested.  Evan used it as a trampoline for about an hour so it's a keeper.  Let me know what you think???  Have to? or Has Been:(

Thanks guys!! PS- Mom cringed when I told her I'd have to cut the legs off just to get it through the door:)

What an awesome find! There are so many possibilities. If it were in my space, I would recover the cushions in some funky fabric. I'd probably paint the sides too. Good luck!
