Standing desk mat – After a few months, your computer desktop battle horse may seem almost like an ice rink after a hockey game. A good looking cover conceals scratches and scratches caused by the monitor, keyboard and mouse stand, and, depending on your level of preference and skill, does not have to be difficult to install or apply. Choose an option of the desktop cover when deciding whether you want a more modern look, a retro feel or something with visual adjustment. Leather comes in many colors or dyes. A nod to traditional decor with natural or traditional skin tones – brown, suede, buff.
Not any paint will stand up to standing desk mat abuse. For longevity, use a durable product, such as paint, plastic enamel. As the name suggests, the enamel dries plastic-like or hard plastic, making it scratch-resistant. It is easier to apply than epoxy resin – another hard drying finish – but harder to use than standard paint. Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for everything, ventilation and cleaning of temperature and humidity, for the best results. Sand with medium grain sandpaper to remove deep scratches and then use fine grain for a uniform finish. Apply a suitable primer before applying the plastic enamel paint using a roller or brush.

No matter how deep the scratches, a leather cover is like a face wash for your standing desk mat. Adhesive spray is your go-to for this project. Spray the back of the leather; place it on the desk without problems, and securely with decorative tacks or tacking edges around the edges. If you are going for a more contemporary environment, opt for leather with a pigmented finish coat – red, green, blue, black or white, for example. Semi-aniline or protected leather offers durability, and the grain of the skin helps camouflage future scratches.
