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! :)

” Office, part of living room: John needed a functional home office setup. He had this great vintage Steelcase tanker desk to start with but really needed a lot of file storage. He found the desk at Urban Ore in Berkeley for a steal. File cabinets are usually so ugly and boring – it was a design challenge especially since they are at the other end of his large living room. We found this awesome vintage file cabinet at Past Perfect in SF.”
