Hang on, how old. Don't go mucking it up if it may be worth something! Get it valued, you never know you may be able to sell it and buy a nice new one with the proceeds.

We once painted what we though was a vile little bookcase (many years ago) only to have my dad tell us it was worth £500 (before painting, about £20 after!!!)
