The argument you really need is why you should keep your job.

The OP explicitly ignored requirements without notification or discussion. Were the boss a commercial customer he could refuse payment and possibly sue for costs incurred due to wasted time. Reverse the roles, what if you e.g. ordered a bespoke suit and found the tailor didn't like working with the cloth you specified so silently substituted one he did like, in his choice of colour? The OP's problem now is that he can't be trusted with projects without close supervision, demonstrably lacks people skills and has no respect for management.
