DIY Tanker Desk refinished top This desk was so disgusting... the rubber top was so damaged (full of deep cuts, grease & grime, gum...). Here's what I did to refinish the top: 1) I peeled the old rubber off 2) Coated the bare metal with Rustoleum primer (2 coats, just to be safe) 3) 2 coats of light turquoise latex paint 4) After it dried, I poured a bartop epoxy over the whole thing! I now have a usable, shiny new desk top - in the color of my choice! :)

Compression Studio: Custom Elongated Tanker Desk

Sneak Peek: Leah Goren and Dylan Ousley. "My desk is a 1950s steelcase tanker desk that I bought from a friend who was tired of moving it every time he moved. It’s a serious, powerful desk, and is really, really heavy – I also hope I never have to move it again! Dylan has a similar vintage desk in his area but it’s wood, and we found it at Green Village, a used furniture and clothing store near our apartment in Bushwick." #sneakpeek
