The above statement says it all. Think about it.
While you are thinking about that, think about the pic below because I need some opinions.
A friend of CH's brought this to us. This desk is big, heavy and laminate. It has very gold trim. Each pedestal has two regular drawers and one file drawer. Even painted this will never sell. What would you suggest for a makeover? I want to cut out the middle portion and make two separate tables. Then I want to cover all the surfaces with bead board after removing all the gold trim. Please tell me what you think.
This desk came to us free and I hate to not use it. I will appreciate any and all responses.
Meanwhile .... keep it simple and make it real.
