I have an old, old, desk in my garage. It is quite small: about 32" wide and only 18" deep with a small drawer where the chair fits and three small cheap drawers on the right side. My mother bought it when a department store was closing in my home town back around 1960 or so. I bought an "antiquing" set and repainted the desk. I was unbelievably proud of it. I kept it all through high school and left it at home when I went off to college. I gave it to my boys as they grew up, and they used it until they finally got a "bedroom set" of furniture. Then they said they didn't want it any more. I decided to take it to school with me and put it in my classroom as a "spare desk." I used it infrequently, but it still saw some use. When the new high school was built, the administration told me I wasn't allowed to put it in my new classroom because it "doesn't fit in." So I put it in our garage in 2004, and that's where it remains. I've been cleaning out the garage over the past couple of months, but every time I look at it and think, "This cheap clapboard desk needs to go out to the curb," I think again, and it still sits in the garage.
I don't know if I will ever take it to the curb. If I could find a "good home" for it, I'd gladly donate it to someone, but to tell you the truth, it's so old and so cheap and so poorly made, I don't know if anyone would want it. In fact, if someone tried to give it to ME anytime in the last 25 years, I would have rejected it. :-)
