The desk’s base and drawer exteriors were painted a custom mix of Annie Sloan’s Country Grey and Pure White and waxed with clear wax and dark wax to hightlight the wood’s character.

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! :)
