At first we thought we would do it ourselves. How hard could it be? We're strong - and plus we just carried it in from the Zip-truck! And come on - just three flights of stairs? It's not like it's a solid wooden piece of furniture that does not come apart in any way... oh, wait. Yes, it is.
And that was the end of the carry-the-dresser-upstairs-by-ourselves adventure. And I freely admit that I was the weak link in the scenario, and so I was the one who ended up calling the nice people at Broad Street Movers (our go-to moving company). They had dudes over within the hour and it took them... oh, I'd say all of 6 minutes to super-gently deposit the dresser where we wanted it to go.
And then I went out and bought a plant to be its friend and companion:
Oh, and summer weather = summer blanket. Yay!
