There was this sad, dorky chair in my garage waiting for the next dump run. I saw this challenge, and decided he will have a makeover. Now, he is the envy of all the furniture in the house. He has even started talking crap to the other chairs. I hope he doesn't try having a wild party while I'm at work...
Here is his pathetic self before...

and now the after...


some close up shots



I used duct tape for the scales on the destroyer boots, and paper mache to make the beasts. The seat is just re-upholstered with black canvas, and I used acrylic paints for the picture.
Thanks for checking it out!

Dorky as it is to say in this case, "THIS ROCKS!"  I'd love a close up of the "boots" if you  have one!  Yowza!

Indeed, hitting "this rocks". Better watch out, the other chairs are going to be begging for a make-over too now.

Oh that rocks.  That truly, truly rocks my friend. 
That's just inspired me to crank out a Led Zeppelin chair (tho strictly speaking it should be a step ladder or something) for the bf's birthday, I've got till Nov.  Let the secret project commence. 
Thank you for the spark.
