I was moving the last few items out of my storage unit a couple weeks ago and....there it was...this gorgeous piece sitting sadly by the dumpster. (Do you have to actually go in the dumpster for it to qualify as a dumpster dive?)
Is it trash I asked? Yes.
Can I take it? Yes.
I had this piece in my car and off to my studio in about 10 minutes flat! It's solid oak, over 5 feet tall, with 12 drawers. And look at the hardware!
And a pull-out writing surface...must have been in a library. Most of the drawers are divided into two halves. The bottom two are deeper than the rest. A couple drawers need to be reglued, but otherwise the piece is in excellent condition!
This is truly the ultimate dumpster dive. I believe I heard angels singing Hallelujiah as I packed this gem into my car. Needless to say, it's a keeper. Yup, found the perfect spot in my studio.
