Refreshed Adirondack Chairs

I love Adirondack chairs, I'd like to 
have one in every color.

I have 2 child size Adirondack chairs 
that my Dad built for the kids, they have 
been around for several years 
now and the red paint is slowly 
wearing off  --  time for a refresh.

Here they are, fading away....

And here they are now after a fresh coat 
of beautiful pastel yellow paint. 
They are all ready for the upcoming summer season!

Sorry for the harsh pics, it's super sunny 
here today and 
even though I'm not complaining 
about the sun, it sure 
makes it hard to take good pics outside.

I'm sure you'll see these babies 
again later on in the year when 
I have my garden planted.

Here are some lovely Adirondack chairs to swoon over....

I have two more adult size Adirondack chairs
that my hubs built, they are in need of a
little repair and a fresh coat of paint too.
I've had them painted a bright turquoise for
the last couple of years and I still love
the color so I think I'll keep them
this color again this year.
Here they are while they
wait for their refresh!

We are going on V-cay in a few 

 days so they'll have to 

wait until we get back!

Adirondack chair building plans!

You make me anxious to sit outside, quietly enjoying the activity of the harbor. It's not quite warm enough yet, but it won't be long til we can enjoy the adirondacks.

Love the adirondack chairs! I'm more traditional and love the plan wood colors. I want to go by the lake right now and sit in one. I'm a new follower, feel free to follow me back at

Love your chairs. A little bit of paint can do wonders, and i love the color you picked. One of these days I'm going to make me a couple adirondack chairs. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Sarah, I love the pretty yellow color you chose for your chairs. And I so enjoyed all the eye candy pics of the chairs. Have a wonderful vacation! Thank you so much for linking up on Fabulous Friday at Faith, Trust & Pixie Dust.

Warmly, Michelle

Yes, I love those chairs too. My father built me a few of them too. I lived with them in the 'natural' wood color for a few years then saw on TV where a lady painted her's in black and white spots. (like a cow) Very very cute. So I got my paint brush out and painted them to look like cows. My father almost had a fit when he found out I painted the chairs. But when he saw them he had to admit they looked very good in the back yard. Now my chairs are painted a pretty aqua. They are in my sister's yard now. She has a big pool and we do not.

For outdoors sitting there is nothing better than adirondack chairs! We have 2 on the front porch and 2 more in the garden area. The ones in the garden are in desperate need of refinishing! You've given me the inspiration to do this! Great color that you used!

Love the sunny yellow chairs. I featured your project in this week's Not So Ordinary link party!

Great job on making the chairs look so fresh and new! I love these chairs and have always wanted some! Thanks for linking this up!

These are gorgeous! I would love to find some old chairs to paint up for my outdoor area but haven't spotted anything yet. The turquoise is gorgeous :)

I love how Adirondack chairs look, all the variations and colors, but I have learned if they are at a certain slant and I plop my behinder down in that style, it's hard to pull azzz back out!

Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

I leave a response each time I appreciate a post on a site or if I have
something to valuable to contribute to the conversation.

It is triggered by the sincerness displayed in the article I browsed.
And on this post "Refreshed Adirondack Chairs". I was actually excited enough to write
a thought :) I actually do have some questions for you if you don't mind. Is it just me or does it appear like some of the comments appear as if they are left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing on other sites, I'd like to keep up with everything fresh you
have to post. Would you list all of your communal sites like your twitter
feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
