I collect vinyl chairs, don't know why.  guess I just like them a lot.  This one I loved the moment I saw, but felt it needed a little makeover.  It was only $15, so happy.  I don't think I've bought a chair for over $15, come to think of it...But anyways I'm OBSESSED with zebra print, so it became zebra printed.  Took hours and hours to paint all these tiny stripes on.  My brother's fiance made me the matching pillow and I made the day of the dead skull pillow.

My chair was becoming so attractive even flies started mating on it:

The after is like its another animal all together! I love it. Patience and perseverence are difficult, but they often pay off. Nice work and love the DOD pillow! Smiley

i shudder to think about how long that would take. not only that, but how much a pain in the ass doing each line seperately would take.

on the other hand, it's fucking wonderful. completely beautiful, doesn't look a thing like the first version. so i guess it evens out; you work for hours and are hero of the land for having the most awesome furniture.

That's so hot. I'd kill for one in my room. Anyone know of any place that might have similar looking chairs (before pictures) for a good price?
