The wife purchased this and it looks to be yellow pine. There is a metal tag that says 1830.

If you look at the second pic there is this black stain on the fold out desk part. It look to be like spilled ink or even liquid shoe polish or something. I am thinking this has leaked into the pores of the wood so just sanding won't do anything.

1) anything you think i should try to minimize it? I don't mind a little character

2) if i was to replace the folding desk piece (the one attached to the desk really isn't bad) how the can i blend in new yellow pine with stuff that almost 200 years old? I can try distress etc but the color is going to be very difficult to even come close to a match.

Any ideas on either one?
