Old steel desk renovation - past project

January 21, 2011 1 min read

This desk was inside my dad's shop for years used as a drillpress stand. It had been badly mistreated; kicked around and drilled into multiple times. I pounded out most of the dents, painted it with yellow spraypaint, sanded the aluminum handles down, and sanded and laminated the top with a black wood grain plastic laminate. It is now used as our bedroom computer desk. P.S. we saw these SAME EXACT desks at the rosebowl flea market a while ago going for $700, are people crazy?
