We’ve had some for a long time – Adirondack chairs, that is.
I love this type of chair. They are comfortable for hours, no cushions needed. We placed them by the larger cottages in the back. When we purchased them, they were painted green, we couldn’t see that the chairs were made out of the cheapest material the manufacturer could find. The chairs started falling apart after 2 summers. Mike would fix them, they’d break again. Then he would make parts out of wood to replace the parts that turned into dust in front of our eyes. It didn’t last long and the chairs would fall apart again.
Enough already! We have had enough!
2 years ago we bought 20 new Adirondack chairs and we love them. They are made from cedar wood and they were built right. The only problem with them is that they look pretty pale and blah next to the yellow cottages.
See what I mean? You can’t even see the chairs.
I had a really great idea, instead of painting them, we’re going to stain them, then there is no danger of peeling paint 😉
I went to Mary’s Paint up on 115. She sells Benjamin Moore and Mike likes to use that. I am so excited, Mary mixed some really fun, bright colors for me. Green, blue, red and yellow. Although now that I have brought yellow home, it isn’t bright enough so I might take it back to exchange it for something more orange-y.
He says he hates to paint, yet…
finished! Woaw, that was easy. It’s like “slapping on” water.
So now we have 2 blue chairs, next will be red, then green.
I am going to find more stuff to stain 😉
