Hello AT, I scored this great desk on Craigslist and I absolutely love the retro look, sturdy construction and built-in shelf. What I don't love is the dark wood grain veneer. I'd ideally like the desk to be a high-gloss white or a maybe even a laminate that looks like Carrera marble. I've been researching stick-on veneers but haven't found the right thing. Can it be painted? Or should I go with a tile or stick-on option? Help! Thanks! Randi Anyone?
