Could I Recreate the Finish on this Desk?

Could I Recreate the Finish on this Desk?

Q: I have a small area in my house that I am trying to turn into an office. I found this desk on West Elm that I love but unfortunately it is too long for the space. I have been unable to find a similar desk anywhere online that has this metal looking finish and is modern looking. I am wondering if I could recreate a similar look with paint on an unfinished wood desk such as this one (pictured after the jump). I am looking for some tips on how to get this look and what type of materials I would need for a project like this.
