A vintage metal desk with a matching chair!!!!!!
At that moment I felt like Bob Barker 'cause the price is right!
After measuring to ensure the fit, we brought the ten dollar "tanker" home. But not before I enquired about the desk's history. Come on people, I live in a small city!
The manager confirmed my suspicion by saying the desk came from a local factory that closed after moving their production to Mexico and leaving dozens of people without jobs. Sadly, that factory had been in town for more than four decades.
Call me sentimental, but I feel like I'm preserving a part of my past by bringing that desk into my life. So, here she is, all cleaned up and in her new home.
You know, I used to have a mahogany dining table here. It's amazing how this 2oo lb beauty really lightens up the space now.
