Since Adirondack chairs usually are outdoor furniture, they are even more likely to be ravaged by termites from underground. Therefore, when looking for wood, choose species that are resistant to termites and other destructive insects.
I love spray paint!! I do wish there were a wider range of colors. I’ve learned to do several very light coats to avoid drips. .

" The Classic Adirondack chairs are very comfortable, but my friends seem to enjoy the pillows and the cup holders as much as the chairs."
“If I were a geneticist, I would say they would be different species of the same family,” says Craig Gilborn, former director at the Adirondack Museum, now known as the Adirondack Experience, in Blue Mountain Lake. Gilborn pointed out the similarity between the cure chair and the Lee-Bunnell “Westport chair” in his book, Adirondack Furniture and the Rustic Tradition.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness. Top reviews Most recent Top reviews We've had a pair of these for five years, sitting out in the elements year-round with no protection whatsoever (though to be fair, this is Southern California elements, so it's mostly heat and sun, with occasional rain — no snow or ice). We just bought another pair, so we'd have a total of four. The first pair has held up so well over the past five years that it's almost impossible to tell which chairs are the new ones and which are the old ones, when sitting side-by-side. This is by far the most durable outdoor furniture I have ever owned.

Even after reading the reviews on these chairs I was surprised when I got them. That is not a good thing! But I waited until the end of the summer to give my review, so I could use them for a while. I wish I would have gotten something else. Here is why:

In the late 1800s, the Adirondack Mountains were fast becoming a popular location for retreat among the wealthy of New York City. The publishing of Adventures in the wilderness; or Camp-Life in the Adirondacks by William H.H. Murray, spurred on the tourists. Willliam H. H. Murray is identified as the founder of the Outdoor Movement, and wrote the book for those who, “pent up in narrow offices and narrower studies, weary of the city’s din, long for a breath of mountain air and the free life by field and flood.” This book started the trend among city dwellers to vacation in the country.
Though not as heavy as teak, it is pretty durable and strong. It will dent and scratch when mishandled but serves you a long time when finished.
Thanks so much for the tutorial! I am so going to try this on m lawn chairs! I might even use the same colors as you did!
