vintage school desk

This is the desk I remember using in 1st grade at St. Paul’s in Euclid, Ohio. I think there’s something to be said of the warmth of natural materials — real hardwood and steel. No molded plastic or particle board with simulated wood grain top. As you can see, it just builds more character with use. I feel fortunate when I was instructed to “take my seat,” this was the one.
