ok---I'll admit, I've had this idea since the Game Board Revamp challenge---but I just started graduate school, and I've been totally busy. 

But when I saw this challenge, I knew I had to get my butt in gear----and I did.  today. 
I did this entire chair today. 
I started with a chair that I found on the side of the road (on my way to the thrift store).  I can see why I found it there....lol.

But first, Here's the finished product (ignore the icky basement floor)


Here's the chair I started with:


And the eighteen inches of dust that came with it.....


What's that?  Yup--cobwebs....


But after some sanding, and mod podge-ing monopoly money, and painted the back legs, you get this:


Here's the front leg:


I actually had this fabric lying around----it's a pillow form.  I have about three more yard of it left too....lol.  It was just waiting for the perfect project like this!  I had to completly reconstruct the cushion with new foam--it was gross!



And the back of the chair:


It's late---I know these pictures are crappy---I did this entire chair in one day, so when I'm more awake tomorrow, I'll try to take better pictures.
Thanks for looking and remember to vote!
