web-rock-030These are the two adirondack chairs my friend and I rescued from the curb.  


 My husband made a new arm for one and I repaired the backs of both of them.  web-s-001

We also had to reinforce one of the legs.  Then I  primed and painted them glossy red. web-s-003

 They still had some years left in them.

I am glad they will be spending that time giving us another great place to sit and enjoy my garden.

  6. wow, they fit perfectly against the green background. If you have painted them with polyurethane paint, the more years they will be serving you! Putting wooden chairs in our garden here is not a good idea as the termites will be feasting on them in a short while, plus the bird and chicken droppings will be very difficult to control, hehe!

  7. Hi,

    Wow, were you lucky to find these chairs. I have a couple in my garden painted a burgundy red…my house trim color, and I love them. Incidently, I garden in Southern California, pretty far removed from where you garden. (-: It is my passion – among with a few other things!

  8. There is nothing like an adirondak chair to perk up your yard!

  9. Love your beautiful red chairs and the plantings around your tree..
