Ugh, I hate how these days it is so hard to find furniture that is made out of wood and not sawdust and glue with a cheap veneer. This is just as frustrating as trying to find nice quality clothing. Even the expensive stuff that requires saving up for MONTHS is still crap once you take a look at it.
We're just going to have to save up to buy wood and build some bookshelves ourselves. Harrrumph. Might as well use this damn art degree to make something other than scarves, baby blankets, and comics.
