New Old Desk

My next furniture project is this awesome old teacher's desk. I picked it up for $35. Solid wood with real oak veneer. Nice and deep to hold my computer screen far enough away and have plenty of surface leftover for writing. And then there's the writing tray. I've always wanted one of those. 
The desktop and tray are pretty beat up, the veneer is chipped. I plan to fill those surfaces with putty and then paint them. Soft sage green maybe? I hope to refinish the rest of the desk with a warm stain. We'll see how well I am able to sand off the finish without damaging the oak veneer. 

I really can't wait to get this desk in place in the studio. I feel like it's the lynchpin around which the rest of the room will come together.
