Vintage Tanker Desk Steelcase Mid-Century. Mine is a sage green with swirled green/white Formica top. Has a few dings and scratches, but I REFUSE to get rid of it! Thinking of repainting it...before it goes in the new house!
Vintage Steel Tanker Desk
We have my grandfather's vintage steel tanker desk from when he worked at Nationwide Insurance with matching chair. Need to redo it, maybe orange and grey or red and grey (GO BUCKEYES!).
