I bought this piece from the antique mall my booth is in and it needed a lot of help to get back strong and in order.  At the same time, a buddy was wanting a custom piece for an apartment renovation.  I pulled together some aspects that he enjoyed with the comics and the skateboard trucks (for handles).  Lots of red paint, distressing and decoupaged comics, along with careful metallic painting and VOILA! 

The last photo is what I started with.  You'll noticed I moved the drawer on top to the sides for storage.
