Love it. Brings back happy memories. One of my lads had super heroes on his desk, the waste paper bin and various folders for storing his other super hero comics. They lasted for ages. Well done.

Your locker looks so fine and 'Dandy'! Hope the comics weren't collectables, 'cos if they were they might have been worth more than your lovely locker!

Hi gormal, we stuck all the bits on with polybond (pva) and then coated the lot when it was finished and it dried clear. No problems with it.

Looks absolutely fab - am planning to do a pokemon wardrobe for my son - i was told to seal it with a clear coat of varnish ;-)

Well done again!!!

I love it. It's great. I'm going to keep an eye out for a blanket box/chest that I could do in a similar manner for my niece.

Default Idea Robbed

Thank you so much for your great idea. We have just moved house and my son read his Beano comics every night before bed! I just have a coat of varnish to go on next and it's finished!

Hope you dont mind me robbing your idea?

Thanks !
