I am so very excited to share this project with you. This is the "piece de resistance" in my collection of craft work....this is the project of which I am the proudest.
This is my son Theo's 6th birthday present.
In all of my posts, I've been refering to my son as "Mr. Tooter" (which is the nickname that unfortunately for him has stuck since birth). However, I am sure that some of you are thinking "what kind of a whack job names their kid Tooter???" His name is really Theo...I'm not crazy ;-)
So, this is what I made for my little guy's 6th birthday. He loves Batman and fortunately for me, my husband is a hoarder and still had his old comic books. Rest assured that this was after checking to make sure that we weren't sitting on a "Batman First Issue" or anything......
The "present" started its life as a well used chair, found in a charity shop which I bought for £3. I liked the shape of it and the fact that the back wasn't fussy. I didn't want something that looked like a dining room chair, so the back had to be very simple. After cutting up about 4 comic books and placing the more iconic images up front and mod podging the project together, this is the finished project. The best part is that Daddy can share his comic collection all over again.

I finished the project off with about 5 coats of clear spray gloss to make sure that it stayed together and shiny.
My only wish was that I had gotten a photo of Theo's face when he saw it.
Have you made anything special for someone special? If so, let me know!! I'd love to hear from you!!!
