I have a large oak desk in my office/guest room. We bought it in an antique store in the Haymarket back in 1992 (when we moved from San Diego to Lincoln) with the intention of using it as a dining room table. Silly me. It's far too narrow for that purpose, so it quickly became my computer desk. It's one of my absolute favorite pieces of furniture. Beautiful, rich color and grain. Sturdy. 2 drawers. Plenty of space to spread out. I'm usually not a messy person, but with a large desk it's easy for the stacks to get out of control. This past weekend I was fed-up with the mess and cleared everything off, polished the wood and tidied up. Let's see how long is stays this neat. I'll post a picture after one full week has passed. I hope I don't embarrass myself!
