How To Update Childhood Desk?

Q: My Dad built this desk for me when I was 12 and I don't want to get rid of it because It has sentimental value. My dad doesn't build cabinets anymore and has told me he kind of threw this together because I needed a desk at the time, so he isn't attached to it, but I am! I wanted to get your opinion on how to update it if even possible. It is made of purple heartwood with white laminate and the desk top is laminate with pink/purple/blue/white speckles.
