When Harrison and I were first married and living the poor student, Provo life, we needed two items of furniture desperately. A dresser and a desk. One day, (I think it was even my birthday...) we were driving home, and a huge student complex was taking out all of their old furniture to bring in new pieces. And what was in their parking lot? Dozens and dozens of dressers and desks. They were going to be taken to Goodwill, but anyone who wanted them could take them. Being the low budget newlyweds we were, we were pumped to find the very pieces we needed for our little basement apartment. This desk was definitely past its prime and after 4 years of trying to ignore it, we finally gave it a makeover. A couple trips to Home Depot, a bit of paint, new hardware, and we love it!
