Restoration Lane

It's been a while, I know.  What can I say :)  

I found this Mid Century Lane Desk today.

For $20.00.  And he threw this in.

For Free.
Yeah, I know.  It was a very good day, which included some other equally amazing finds.

But back to the desk, it's a little beat up so I am going to attempt my first restoration job.  If you've got any tips let me know.  I'll be sure to post pictures of the after - I think this desk should clean up to something pretty spectacular.

And here's a big favor, if you know which line this desk is part of please share.   I have gone down the rabbit hole of the internet searching for this bad boy - trying to get a glimpse of what the desk might look like when it's supposed to look like what it looks like.   Based on the serial number I know it's from 1958.  That's all I got.

Do you have a catalog from 1958?  A matching piece?  I would love any suggestions of where else to look.  I'll be back soon with some of my favorite finds of the weekend, and hopefully some excellent after pic.  

Happy Hunting!
