Theodoros Papadopoulos from Drama, Greece, shared his Shelf Porn with us over the weekend, and in the comments section, he mentioned “some pictures of furniture dressed with comic pages. Something we did at our school.”

Theo is a high school teacher in Drama, and he sent in pictures of a craft project he did with his students.

“I am a teacher in a high school here in my town. I teach computers, but every year it becomes harder and harder. Children are more difficult because life is more difficult. They grow up away from us, hiding in that huge internet place that nobody can control, at least in a good way,” Theo said. “So I tried to do something different in my class. We made some chairs to look like comic books. We used glue and put some comic book pages on them. The glue is crystallized wood that you can buy by the pound. It’ s non toxic and you can remove it from your hands with water. When they dried the next day we used again another layer of glue. It worked like polish. The glue is white but it becomes transparent when it dies. Now people can sit of them without any problem. The students like the experience, or maybe the time that did not have a lesson.”

Check out some of the photos below.

That is way cool. I have thought a lot about doing the same thing to my bookshelves and the small table I have in my comic room, using doubles of some issues and pages from some unneeded trades, but never knew how it would look.

Part of me loves this and the OCD part is horrified!

Good stuff! I’ve done a few of these myself, I stick to ripping up the black and white Essentials or Showcase collections. My left brained mind can’t handle all those colors up against each other. :)

What a wonderful idea! You’ve inspired to try this with a bookcase in my newborns room. Thanks!
