The steps are too numerous, but they're all included in the two tutorials I mentioned.
A couple things I'd recommend are to cut out the legs using the pen tool if you know how. If not, use whatever method you know to make a clean selection of the legs and save the selection in an alpha channel. (To do this, with the selection active, go to Selection>Save Selection - I think.)
You can then find that selection in the channels pallette later when you need it again.
Do a levels correction on the image. This will give more life to the image.
Do the tutorial about Adding Grain from the tutorials section.
Then do the tutorial on Blended Duotone at the end.
Finish off by playing with the colours - I used Selective Color, but Hue/Sat, Color Balance, or any of the other colour tools will work.
You'll end up with something similar to the sample I posted, which is a deep, waxy look that's popular in magazines and advertising.
I forgot to mention, when you blur the legs to get rid of the jpg artifact, make sure you have the selection of the legs active, that way the blur won't really bleed outside of this selection. That's an important reason why you need to save the selection in the beginning, because you'll need it a few times.
