My parents bought it from an older couple when I was 9 years old, (it had belonged to their daughter, and I think it was built in the 60's) and I've sure gotten a lot of use out of it!
When I was little, I stamped the inside drawer of the desk with my hello kitty stamp, because the previous owner had done the same thing. I used it all through elementary, jr. high, & high school to do homework and it was one of the only pieces of furniture I took with me when I moved out for the first time.
I painted it back and distressed it a few years ago, and while I love it, I just don't have the room for it anymore. If you're interested in it, you can see the official ad here.
