Here is my desk in use. Neatness did not last but 1 day. It does not look beautiful no more. I put a vinyl table cloth over my new desk , so that I can keep it looking new. I am messy when I paint. I really am not careful . I have ruined two tables, luckily they were the fold up type. I also put a rug underneath desk to protect new floor, because I also stained the old floor. What could I I say I really use my room .
