Not sure what to do with this
We have this desk and chair that originally belonged to DH's Gr Grandmother. The desk is from Tillman Brothers in LaCrosse, WI. Guessing Mid 1800s, as that is when the furniture store was in existence? Desk appears to be walnut, is partly stripped, and in generally tough condition.
Chair is not really a match for the desk, but we've always used them together. It has a rush seat, and many layers of some kind of finish badly done. Also in really rough shape, and no one should probably sit in it.
Because of the family connection, I hate to just toss it. What would you do with it? Is it worth spending money on?
Thanks for your opinions.
