Best Dumpster Dive Ever!!!!

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.
Yes? 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.

Happy hunting!
