Newer isn't always better. Nope.
Definitely not in the case of our desk.
Our jumbled, messy, particle board, falling apart, "newer" desk went out the door!
And a vintage, solid wood, huge desk came in.
I bought it off a swapping page on Facebook! How great is that?!? I got it WAY cheaper than if I had bought a new (less quality) one.
All of that hutch space in the first one doesn't even compare to the huge drawers in the second one! I have EMPTY drawers, people! Just look how nice it looks with everything hidden away and not out for everyone to see!
