Making My Mom's Desk a Little More "Me"?

Good Questions

Q: I sort of inherited a desk from my mom when she moved out of the country. It is a very basic wooden desk with a hutch and 100% not my style. There is no room in the budget to get another one, but I also want to keep it because it reminds me of my mom. Any good suggestions on how to make a very basic and blah desk look lively and bright? My style is apparently (as told by those who visit my home) a 'modern with thrift store accessories' look.

Random things I might add for those of you that would like to suggest anything:

- I'm 20 days shy of being 21
- I live in a small one bedroom (the desk is going to take over my dining space)
- I have a lot of studying to do the next few semesters! So bright and awakening is preferred.

Thank you all!! Shown is a picture of a similar looking desk I found at Target.
