Thanks for the info, Corey. I didn’t use primer either and I feel like I used quite a bit of paint. I tried to use a sweeping motion while spraying and I was worried about using too much, but since you mentioned using a thick coat, I guess I didn’t use too much (even though I used more than one can).
Plastic chairs are especially durable in comparison to wooden models, which makes them the ideal candidate to keep outdoors at all times. As long as you clean them off every few weeks or at least once a month, you should have no trouble with the chairs for many, many years.
Hardwood oils will not harm wicker or sling material, however, it should be wiped free during oiling projects. If wicker or sling becomes soiled or dirty, use water and mild detergents for cleaning.
Over the next 20+ years, Bunnell developed a successful Westport chair-making business, and he left his signature on each one. The Westport chair grew in popularity because of its durability and high comfort level, but as the years passed, the design began to change into the modern Adirondack chair.
Here's a fun way to reuse wood. Make this Adirondack chair from shipping pallets or other reclaimed lumber.

High heat and excess sun can damage poly resin, and if you’re in an environment where the weather gets very hot, say over 100′ regularly, you may want to bring your poly resin chairs to a shady area in those times.
The seat where your knees rest over is roughly 16 inches from ground level and the highest point on the back rest comes in at 40″, which is ideal for the big and tall person wanting to buy a Adirondack chair.
Love your idea and the color! Went out and bought the exact same color (satin lagoon). I scrubbed my 2 chairs with a brush and used the hose to rinse and let them dry for hours before painting. Ran out of paint before finishing my second chair. Had to wait about 2-3 weeks to finish a little bit of touch up on 1st chair (due to back problems). I waited at least 3 weeks before even thinking about sitting on it. I also kept it in the garage for several days to dry right after spraying it (so it wouldn’t get rained on). I used an old towel to dry off the raindrops and noticed blue paint! Now I’m afraid to let anyone sit on it. I didn’t use primer. Any suggestions?
