Comic book computer desk

Posted: 2020-03-23


As a lot of people are doing during the COVID-19 pandemic I am working from home a lot more. After the first week I decided my desk needed brightening up a bit. I picked up some cheap comic books from my LCS and set about covering my desk.

My desk is a worktop/legs combo from Ikea so the legs screw off really easily. I cut out pages and panels from the comics, I tried not to weep while I destroyed them…

I spent a while laying the pages out to make sure the desk was covered and I had a good mix of styles. Once they were glued down I brushed on 5 coats of a clear sealer, leaving 20 minutes inbetween coats.

And the after photo. I’m really happy with how it turned out, and should make working from home a bit more interesting.
