Chair Backs for a Local Teacher

One of the teachers at my kids' school approached me about painting the backs of some chairs she has in her classroom. They are canvas director's chairs. And they made the perfect "canvas". Oh, I had some fun with these! 

She has a really fun classroom with a fun flower border stapled up around the whiteboard. The green chair was done to match the border.

Here is is in the classroom

And here's a close up view of it in my studio

The red chair is a very high director's chair that the teacher and students have affectionately dubbed "The Queen's Chair" so we made it official by painting that on the chair.

I love painting on unusual surfaces. Furniture is some of the most fun to decorate and paint. Now I'm looking around my house wondering what piece of furniture could use a little pizazz. :)
