How do I refinish a built-in desk?

by Chris

I’m redoing a bedroom fo my grandaughter... it has 2 built in desk tops , 1 on each side of the room I believe they are made of plywood but I sanded them down but they still won’t absorb the stain... help! If I can’t stain them not sure what I can do.. painting over wood for a desk seems hopeless cause I’m afraid the paint will just come off with everyday use. What can I do?
