Here's my thought. I would sand it down and see if the wood is worth anything. A natural finish or a walnut finish would be pretty. If not, I think the color would depend on the room you are putting it in and who will use it. Mostly, I'm seeing crystal hardware on a dark natural finish.
Love your suggestion Andrea! My home is quite traditional. The desk is all by it's lonesome in the loft. Cheryl
