    Cell phone holder chair for 1/6

    I was looking through a Japanese dollar store when I stumbled onto these cell phone chairs. I thought they might work with 1/6 figures.
    I got it for an equivalent of around 2 dollars, whereas I've see some 1/6 chairs on eBay ranging from 10-20 dollars.



    I didn't quite like the color, and the plastic looked a bit cheap. So I decided to give it a new paint job.



    After a bit of sanding to remove the rough edges, I coated it with primer to help the paint adhere better:





    Then a silver coat is applied to give it a metallic sheen:





    Next is the main color, I went with clear red. (Without the silver coat underneath, the red would just look flat):





    After quite a few coats of red, and everything's done, I coated it with a glossy clear coat to help seal in and protect the paint from scratches and chipping, it also makes it look smooth and really shiny:





    Here's a little test photo shoot with the chair. Prior to, and after painting:














    Sorry for the lengthy post, the whole process was a bit exhausting and time-consuming, but it was fun nonetheless. Hope you guys will enjoy it, and thank you for looking

    Great job upgrading this. I like the sound of $2. I miss the racing bucket seat cell phone holder that used to be around $6. Can't find them anymore. This looks awesome !

    I snagged one of those at a Japanese dollar store (Daiso) in the Dubai Mall (of all places) last year. I love the outfit on the girl in the 'before' pics.

    You can find those on eBay too. Just search for "1/6 chair," and you'll likely come up with more than a few of those mixed into the results.

    Nice work,

    I've got a deck chair somewhere that was a phone holder. It never occurred to me that it could be 1/6, I'm not sure where it is now though.

    CHEERS!

    I got a few of those chairs.
    They're not bad, the repaint helps a lot too.
