“When I first laid eyes on this writing desk, I wasn’t going to stop to pick it up. The top looked really beaten and un-salvageable,” says Denise at Salvaged Inspirations. Luckily she got out of the car for a closer inspection, and decided that while it would take some effort, the desk was more than salvageable. It came home with her.
