How to Refinish Heirloom Desk?

Q: I have a desk from maybe the 1940s that was my grandfather's and then my aunt's. It is a very pale pink and a beautiful solid piece of furniture but it is now beyond shabby chic and just...shabby. I believe I have all the original hardware, some of which is in the desk drawer as it has fallen off. It just needs to be restored (sanded, painted, etc.) Maybe new hardware. Any advice?

I almost want to do it the same pink color since I have a matching lamp from my grandmother, a 1950s diner chair, and I found a clock from the 1950s all in the same color! I'd be open to some new ideas and am grateful for any advice!
