I don’t think there is any other outdoor seat more comfortable than an adirondack chair. Preferably one that is staring out onto a lake. Maybe a margarita in my hand. Definitely a margarita in my hand.
A friend that I have known for a few years is moving to London (!!!) soon and asked me to refinish her adirondack chairs. She close Duck Egg Blue and I think they look awesome in this color. It’s definitely a color that you cannot buy an adirondeck chair in.
The chairs for originally painted black when purchased.
They needed to be sanded down. I always give my clients an option. Electric sander for a smooth finish (and more time & cost) or hand sanding, which is lighter.
Here they are after being painted & distressed.
Just a reminder. If you are painting over a piece that is already a color, like these chairs were originally black, then you will have a few layers when you sand. You will have the original wood color, the black (original color) and then you will have your top coat (new color). I love seeing the black come through on these chairs. I think it’s adds a ton of interest. You definitely can’t purchase this look at any store!
Selfie with the adirondeck chair. We match!
Unerneath the chairs I only did one coat as I tpyically do. I LOVE this look too.
Rustic, chippy, lovely.
