Last summer Josh and I went to a storage unit auction. We spent $90 on a unit that was packed with mostly junk. It was the only unit we bid on and we chose it because he spotted a yellow Poang Chair from Ikea which is about $150 new ($200 at the time we went to the sale). We figured that if the chair was the only good thing that came out of the unit it would still be worth it. As we started digging through the boxes and wading through trash we found at the very back of the unit two dressers. They were heavy and very well made so we moved them into our storage unit with the intention of either bringing them home and refinishing them or selling them.
Yesterday we cleaned out the storage unit and brought the larger of the two home.
