It's a wood desk with PVC on top. Here's more info on the project: http://beachvintage.blogspot.com/2009/08/project-day-vamping-old-desktop.html

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Margaret Everton added this to Dress Your Desk
Covering the desk itself dresses and personalizes it without taking up any more space. The chair--and even that fan--tie things together well. Any version of a secretary desk like this allows for an extra ledge overhead while still offering the full work surface.
Niche Interiors added this to Workhorses for Small Spaces
Maximize your entry -- Use a desk instead of an hall table.
Kit Pollard added this to Happy Homework Spots
I like the idea of covering the desk with fun contact paper, or a map. The cover could be changed as the desk's owner grows up, too.
