My first decoupage project!  Not counting, of course, the little tissue paper covered box when I was eight  Wink.  So, I'm in the process of redecorating my room (in a comic book theme), and the desk was bugging me because its so dang boring...  Now it's definitely more interesting:




Here's the desk before the makeover:





Here's after the first day:



And now finally finished:













There's panels from older and recent Iron Man comics in there, they're all scans that were printed however, no comics were hurt in the making of this project Wink 

I think it turned out pretty good, it just needs a coat of sealer and it's ready for my new room!  I hate to put my computer on it and cover up the comics though  Smiley

So much better than before, I love this! I wanted to do something similar, but I'm too afraid of the result not being scratch-resistant enough..
Anyway, you did a wonderful job, and the idea of a comic-themed room is really lovely!

Thanks for the great comments, both of you!

bl0bfi5h, I've got some clear acrylic spray, that hopefully should take care of any potential scratching...  And I'm so excited to get my room done, I'm really going all out with the comic theme.  The way I figure it, this might be the last time for awhile that I'm living somewhere that will let me paint the walls- with a huge comic mural...  Smiley

Thanks!  I used Mod-Podge and a generic spray acrylic, I don't remember the specific brand, but I got it at Wal-Mart.
