Hey all, this is my first Instructable, so please excuse my formatting, but I hope you all can find a use for old comics like I did!

This is a super easy to make decorative coffee table for your living room.  Truly this process can be applied to any surface so you can trick out your dresser, desk, night stand, or other surfaces!

Take a look at the video tutorial I did with TheStylish for a step by step on how to accomplish this cheap/easy/fun coffee table! 

All you need are:
comic books (or any other type of paper you'd like to cover a surface with ie newspapers, internet memes, magazines)
Polycrylic (safe and water soluble before it's dried)
Paint brus

I did this on a smaller scale (coasters) with some old Harvey comics. (The photo's not upside down on my computer.)

Nice instructable, never seen this style of instructable before and it has a certain appeal.
Did the exact same thing(she's a comic fan) a couple of years ago and made my girlfriend an open cabinet for all her jewelry (which is a lot).

I really like the coasters, did you make those yourself?
Love it!
