This reminds me of a chair my husband had that was painted by his entire 7th grade class. Everyone painted a small bit. That would be a great project for a kid's birthday party and would result in a fun chair!
Beyond The Picket Fence: My Pre-Garage Working Routine I do the same thing to get me rolling on projects! This is a definite idea for adding a little plush to that antique desk chair I was in a quandary over! Yay!
