Kids' Desk

Wow, it's been awhile since I've done one of these and this was really fun.

The boys are outgrowing their dinky little kid table with mini-chairs, so I have set about trolling craigslist for the old school all-in-one desk and chair hybrid so that each kid might have his own homework/coloring/demise-plotting space.  I actually found a few for sale, but liked this beaut the best, which was a steal at $30:
 It is solid steel, very well-constructed, and surprisingly heavy.  In other words, boy-proof.

I had wanted to do something covered in comic-book-art for them for quite some time, and this thing already came with the perfect, Marvel Comic Red paint.  Some scissors, a tub of Mod Podge, and a Sunday hour to kill, and here is what emerged:

I love how it turned out!  And love the awesome inner dialogue from Superman in this frame:

Now I just need another one like it to do a Batman edition.  Or perhaps Spiderman?  Hmmmm.....
