1. Measure the width of the top of the back of a non-upholstered chair. Cut a 3-inch-tall solid-color wall decal to the same width plus an inch. Press the decal firmly to the chair, smoothing out any air bubbles with an old credit card. Use a crafts knife to carefully trim away the excess decal from the sides of the chair. 

2. Repeat the process with a 1-inch-tall piece of gold wall decal, positioning it about  1/2 inch below the colored decal.

3. Repeat steps 1 and 2, working your way down the chair. Cut the last piece of solid-color decal into a curved shape, as shown.
