Mid-Century Steel Desk

Instead of paying $1,000 or more for a restored industrial-style desk, get one in used condition and fix it up yourself. We found this beige one for About $275 at Build It Green!, a reuse center in New York City. Remove old paint with an eco stripper, such as SoyGel. Then buff the bare steel to a soft sheen with a random-orbit sander, and top with clear polyurethane to prevent rust.
