So I had a pair of craptastic chairs in the garage that I had found months ago at a garage sale. I thought they would be perfect for this challenge.  The Husband was super excited because I said that he could do whatever he wanted as long as it was done in a week.  Challenge accepted!  (But he would only do one. Grin)

So here is where the chair began, bad stain and torn fabric:



I took off the cushions and sanded the whole thing:



Then We hit it with a coat of black spray paint and I recovered the cushions in a faux ostrich Vinyl (from a jacket I found )



Then the Husband got crafty with the paints:




Till the chair was complete with most of man's vices Women, Gambling, and Alcohol!
Viva Las Vegas Baby!


He is so proud of it and can't wait to show his guy friends.  I think he deserves a drink or at least a vote!  Grin

Very cute! Great to put in a man's poker room or something! I love the faux ostrich. But he really should do the other chair to match! Or, even better, you should decorate the chair with women's vices~shoes, purses, chocolate, makeup...craft supplies!  Grin

Wow .. it looks much better now! I agree .. the other chair should have women's vices painted on it.

I dunno. I think you have the fine beginnings of a super fancy poker table here...
