my first thought was PAINT!!! to cover up that ugly dark wood. I suggested a nice darkish blue and Eric (the bf that dragged it home) agreed.
I found this antique map reprint yesterday at auction. I kinda forgot about it until the bf saw it in my trunk and commented on it. We decided to decoupage it to the top. Then we had thoese art deco luggage stickers  that we stuck on and voila!

I wish I had a 'before' pic of this desk.  It was UGLY! My bf dragged it home from school one day (they were throwing it away) as a replacement for our computer desk, which is falling apart. It was really dark wood, it didn't match anything else in our house, and it had casters on the bottom, but one was missing so a block of wood was holding that corner up. Needless to say, I am ecstatic with the way it looks now compared to what it originally looked like.
