How to remove wood veneer.

I love this beautiful vintage desk but she needed a major face lift.  When I was given the desk my sister in law had successfully removed most of the veneer but could not get the rest to budge so she decided to pass the desk to me, THANK YOU sister!! 
veneer has glue on one side and to apply it you use heat.  So to remove it you use the same method by heating up the glue again.  I used my iron and a thin metal spatula from the dollar store.  Took some effort so don't give up also try prying at it from different angles.  Next I am going to sand it down and use wood filler to even out the desk top.

I love her curves and look at those legs complete with wooden wheels!
