I adored this desk, but wanted a stainless steel top to match the vibe in the rest of the room. Thanks to another Anna white post about killer b designs (i think!) building her own dream kitchen, I realized I could get a local welder to fabricate a top, just like she got them to fabricate the top of her island. They built a sleeve that drops right on top of the wood top, and creating about a 3/4" overhang all the way around the desk; it cost about $275. Otherwise, I followed Ana's directions and painted it an off-white color that's the same as the trim in the room. Love it! Thanks Ana!
