I found this pair of chairs at a thrift store for a very reasonable price.  I loved the mid century look, but they were in bad shape and needed to be redone.  I had a cheery piece of vintage fabric, which luckily matched beautifully with some old paint I had in the garage, and I got started.  The frame of the chair is done in black for contrast, the back splat is green on the outside, and yellow is sandwiched in between.  Took me a little while to finish between drying time and small brushes, but I love they way they turned out.
