Leisure Birds is a small used clothing boutique at the junction of Noe and Mission neighborhoods. Although a lot of thought has gone into the making of the space, the actual physical work was done almost single-handedly in 2 weeks under $500. Branches were hung on metal chains suspended from the ceiling to act as clothing racks, and both the changing room and main decorative objects were fabricated out of old umbrellas. The shelves were lightly stained with water-based paint so that the grain of the wood is still visible. Wire mesh sheets were hand-crinkled and hung on one wall to give it depth and texture. We found the bench, abandoned on the street, along with several old kitchen cabinets. With a little intervention, both were transformed into objects of comfort and functionality to become part of the making of Leisure Birds.
