When Gwyneth and I saw a couple pull down the back door of their U-Haul, and place this chest next to the dumpster, part of me wanted to run after them and convince them they could definitely find space for it in their new home. Another part of me wanted to tell them that they were double parked and should move along. No decision necessary. The couple drove away, and 5 minutes later Gwyneth was striking a pose in front of her find.
Once we gathered our supplies, I took the chest apart while Gwyneth supervised.
…for both of us.
There were a few damaged areas on our chest, so we repaired them with wood filler.
With some easy reassembly the next morning, we turned our Dumpster Dive chest into a new piece that does double duty as a nightstand and linen closet!
We have reached capacity and think storage might be the best answer. But if you’ve taken our Apartment Tourand have another suggestion, you know we’re dying to hear it!
