I've found so many great design tips over the years. Here's one of them.
After a few years of use, dark wood desktops become scuffed and dented. Spruce up your desk with this simple solution.
Measure your desktop and have a glass shop cut custom panels to fit atop it. Between the desk and glass, add a textured vinyl fabric that adds interest and color (along with a non-slip surface for the glass). Cut it yourself, and you can always change it out if you want to spruce up your desk in the future.
