1234 Ladder backs galore

I have been painting my behind off doing lots of furniture.  I had a slump the month of January - kinda blahs towards anything creative but it passed and I have been going non-stop ever since.
I bought these four ladder backs from my friend to redo.  They were in serious bad shape and had no seats to speak of.  
 And all done:
They turned out rather well.  But I must admit that painting on the back is quite a pain in the patootie. 
How do sign makers do it all the time?  But while doing it I was thinking- I need to make some signs.
