Hey Diane! You definitely want them to be smooth and very clean so the paint will stick. I’m not sure sanding plastic is necessary, but giving them a good scrub is a good idea. If they’re wood, then yes, sand them first.
Hi Gina. I just used a kitchen sponge with a rough side. Not all of the chalky stuff came off, but they were better than when I started. The paint did just fine without getting all of the chalky stuff off first. I have exactly the same chairs with the same horrible chalky residue on them. Did you have to remove the chalky substance before painting? I went to Home Depot to buy my paint (ironically Satin Lagoon and a Satin Eden). The guy there told me to use TSP and steel wool to scrub off the white chalky residue, then dry then paint 2 coats. So far I have only scrubbed 1 chair (I have 4 lol) and it was exhausting. Just wondering if you scrubbed that off first or am I wasting my time. My friends think I am crazy to waste so much time painting 17.00 chairs lol. .
If you love the idea of adding Adirondack chairs to your yard but not up for the task of building them yourself then here are a few that you can get online. Each Adirondack chair is numbered and the corresponding number is under the photo with the link to the chair. Or find a wide variety of gorgeous wooden Adirondack chairs for sale HERE.
The Highwood Hamilton line of Adirondack Chairs is comfortable, with a gracefully-sloping back and three reclining settings. The reclining settings don’t make a huge difference in the comfort of the chair, but they are better than having no reclining features!
Don’t let this year be the year that you keep spending your money on inexpensive boring white plastic chairs that won’t clean and crack year after year. They aren’t sturdy, and our winds can easily tip them or blow them away!

Is there anything better than rocking back and forth? We loved it as children and as adults we are still fascinated with the soothing motion. Get some fun back in your life with the addition of an Adirondack rocking chair or Adirondack porch swing.
The Adirondack style design dates back centuries. Our Adirondack style design is available in almost all outdoor furniture options ranging from chairs, swings, rockers, gliders, swivel, and non-swivel chairs! This style is created specifically with a fan back making it nice and roomy! This style also offers the perfect reclining angle designed for comfort.
Now, while you might think that the lighter design of this chair will negatively affect the durability, that is not the case. In fact, the hardware that comes with this chair is exceptionally tough and weather resistant. This hardware is made out of 304-grade stainless steel, which is guaranteed not to rust, even if you leave the chair out in the weather.
Oh and yes I said fake because it it’s not really wooden. It’s a synthetic wood material now known as Highwood. Probably the closest thing you can get to the real deal. But of course without the tedious maintenance that wooden Adirondack chairs are famous for.
Often contemporary Adirondack chairs will feature a seashell style rounded back, and a sloping seat base for comfort.
In practice, these are almost identical chairs to the Polywood line of poly Adirondack chairs, but the color palette is slightly different. We definitely favor the Polywood line’s colors, but if you find a color you like and the Trex one is cheaper, go for it!
