Hard to tell how big the damage is, but it certainly looks like you could fix it with an epoxy wood filler like PC-Woody. (

It's simple to use, moldable, paintable and bonds like iron.

Definitely wait a little while until you're sure your dog isn't just going to tear it up again.

"there's something about an office with a desk in the middle of the room that's just hot."

Yeah, like Mussolini had. He was so hot.
Is it me, or is the writing around here getting insipid? It's a nice desk, but use your grown up words if you're going to blog about it.

I think that frosted glossy mix would look dated really fast--the color too.

What makes it "modern?" It's a box.

Perfect, myyyyyywayyyyyy. It's Frankenstein; and not even Young Frankenstein, which would suggest a sense of humor or Duchamp-y silliness. I hate to imagine what other decor you'd need to make this piece seem attractive. "It's great--we'll put it next to the iron maiden."

If AT wants something different for that loft in the Meatpacking District, just get a steel truck bed toolbox and bolt a few wheels on the bottom.

The flower baskets in Georgetown are great. They always make mine seem so inadequate, but I love that the BID does that.

Yeah, this is one of the ugliest and worst-designed buildings in D.C.. The FBI building is another. Any other nominees?

Why is there always too much stuff in these homes? "Vast open space" is the last thing I think of when I look at these pictures. I think "yard sale."

I think you would have gotten more yes votes if you had said it was from Dwell instead of Hallmark.

Weekly sourced at the original site, overbroad and undersupported. That's the kind of flimsy generalization that will kill the whole "green" fad. Now landfills aren't so bad after all; two years from now will be a warning that composting is killing us all. People will get tired of following the trend and ignore all ot it, including the legitimate stuff.

Yes, lots of modernist architecture in DC, including a ton better than this monster. Too run-down for too long, a design that attracts the homeless because of the huge sheltering overhangs, and a DC government that cannot do justice to decent buildings. Just because a famous guy designed it, doesn't make it a work of genius. And just because a local board of bureaucrats wants to preserve it doesn't make them right.
