dumpster diving

I’d say 50% of the furniture in my apartment is from the curb. You know I love free things.

Well, recently, one of my best friends alerted me to a lovely armoire near the dumpsters at her own apartment complex. Of course, when I got there, it was on its side, covered in trash and bees. But I didn’t let it deter me! After wading through 5 feet of trash bags, recruiting 6 men to lift this 500 lb beauty, and precariously driving with it wobbling in the back of my truck….I finally made it home with this stunning piece. I had no space in my bedroom for it, so its in the dining room serving as a china junk cabinet.
