Back in 1976, my little sister and I shared a room. My parents bought us new furniture, probably to lessen the sting of having to share our space. My mom lovingly painted it white, and years later, her father stripped and stained it to a beautiful natural finish. I went to college and sis inherited the goods...only to "trade" it back to me when they moved cross country from CA to OH while she was still in high school. Fast forward to 2010, my husband of 6 years and I finally buy "grown up" furniture and don't have any room for my dresser! My sister's daughter, in high school herself, was in desperate need of more storage space, and despite the fact that they probably could have bought a second hand dresser in OH for less than what we paid for shipping, it gives me great comfort to know that this dresser is still in the family. Sis has promised that the dresser will stay in the family, and if need be, we'll ship it back to me...or my grandchildren (someday) if/when she doesn't need it anymore. Thanks Uship for making it easy to find a reliable shipper that I felt comfortable with, entrusting this family treasure to and making sure it got delivered safely!
