Oh my glob, this is the best chair restoration ever. Redditor reallylovely spotted a beat up chair at an antique shop and immediately saw an opportunity to turn the back of it into Finn from Adventure Time. She did an incredible job and explained the process:
I cleaned, sanded, primed then painted the design with acrylics. I also added a few coats of glow-in-the-dark paint to his hood and his socks. Then I sealed it about four times. For the seat, I used felt, and hand-embroidered the details of Jake’s face. For the dream bubble, I used a small piece of Adventure Time printed fabric which I bought online. After this photo was taken, I added a clear plastic layer to the seat to protect the design and allow it to actually be used as a chair (but I mostly made it as art).
She got the chair for only $20 and says she’d accept a considerable amount of money for the finished product. I’m guessing someone is going to give it to her.
