Thanks for the compliments guys!

I got the Monopoly fabric years and years ago, and I believe I got it at WalMart.  I thought I had a piece of fabric that was just scattered money (I think I bought it to back the pillows with).  I'm sure now that I'm done with the chair I'll find it....lol.
Maybe I'll make a pillow for the chair.

I like the idea of doing a different chair for different games.
The hardest part of this challenge was finding a used Monopoly game---I refused to buy a perfectly good new one.
I came across plenty of other games that would make good chairs, but since I had the Monopoly fabric, I just had to find the game.

Best recon chair I have seen! I too have a bunch of the Monopoly fabric that I purchased at Wally world a long time ago. If someone is still looking for some, I would suggest that they search on ebay.
I could see making more chairs  based on different games. Just scan the board, box, etc., and print your own fabric on fabric photo transfer sheets. These could be cut into squares and made into patchwork fabric for the seat cushion.

That chair is cuter than a lot of things I've seen made on HGTV!
