This handsome piece has a lot of character, but most of that character has been carved into it's surface over many years of use by school children (including some choice swear words).
We'll begin by assessing the damage, including how much character should remain intact. Preserving the personality in a vintage piece of furniture is very important. Just like with us, as furniture ages their parts weaken, but sometimes build character. We'll want to carefully ensure this desk maintains its maturity, but looks awesome!
