On Facebook, I saw this classroom teacher rocking chair idea that started with this story:
My daughter is a 1st grade teacher. She has been wanting a rocking chair for her classroom. She found one for $25 and has spent her summer refurbishing it. Picture on left is after she stated stripping and sanding it. I think she did a fabulous job! She does not get her talent from me!
Yes, a $25 thrift store rocking chair turned into THIS gorgeous and FUN reading chair for teachers.
On the left – the old rocking chair after she sanded it down…. on the RIGHT, the AFTER – I just love it!
Did you notice the rocking chair seat?
If not, go back and LOOK…
It’s painted like notebook paper – lines and all!
So much detail and creativity – I’m impressed!

I’m not quite sure that rocking chair was found at a yard sale tho – it looks more like one of those unfinished front porch rocking chairs you can get at Home Depot or Lowe’s, doesn’t it?
Either way, it’s REALLY cute!
Let’s look at one more painted rocking chair idea with a school classroom theme…
This classroom rocking chair is a bit more ‘subtle’ since it is painted with pastel colors as opposed to the bold, primary colors in the rocking chair pictures above.
Very pretty and would be a gorgeous furniture piece in any classroom.
Ok, let me show you the teacher rocking chair DIY video tutorial where she’s turning a cheap rocking chair into the CUTEST teacher reading chair:
What type of paint should you use to paint your teacher’s reading chair?
She used used Behr paint and primer in the color POLAR CHAIR for the chair, and small Behr paint samples of primary colors for the pops of color.
