Desk for the Lego Room

Several months ago while still working the old job, I came across this desk in the alley way.  The alley was right up against a huge apartment building and furniture was routinely dumped, but most of the time it was of no interest.  But this time I scored.

I'm almost finished sanding it and then I'll paint it.  Here's a "before" or maybe a "during" picture.

The wood is nice and the construction is solid.  Note the drawers:

I THINK I'm going to keep the original hardware.  At first I didn't like it at all, but it might be growing on me.

What do you think?  Should I keep it or trade it out for something different??  Need to make a decision soon if I'm going to change it so I can put wood putty in the holes before I paint.

I like the hardware! It is classic and would blend well with anything you do to it!

Keep it, but you might want to do a quick search for hardware that isn't as worn. This pattern is pretty, I think.

Yeah, I'm thinking I'll keep it.

Isabel, you make me laugh. The thing I like best about the hardware is the worn look!
