In Response To: leatherette desk top (Judie)

What you have is an "oil cloth" on your desk. It is basically a sail cloth canvas soaked in pigmented linseed oil, (or artist color oils, same thing). I do not know of any sources for this oil cloth. Now a days most people will replace this with a leather desk top which will add to the value (because it looks classier) and looks much nicer on a desk.

Here is a link to replacement leathers: Desk Top Leather
