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.

Mine was doing chalky powder too I found out that it was too hot out and the mist when I was spraying was drying before touching the plastic. So I used a micro fiber cloth wipe off the plastic table I was doing and put another coat once it started to get dark out no chalky powder. I should have known. I’m doing the chairs tomorrow and was looking up how people have done chairs.

Being an outside chair it needs to have a certain level of weatherproofing, which this chair does really well. It’s very durable and can last outside year-round which gives you peace of mind.
Do you want to collect all the colors for your patio? I would! These chairs have the classic Adirondack design with a moderately-high back and gently reclining the seat. The armrests are large while the seats are large and strong.
Think about anything you want to do outside. For example, reading an interesting novel in your backyard, garden or such places. Having a cup of coffee or evening tea, you have very wide armrests that you can use to put your mug as you enjoy your sipping session.
You may feel to use cushions on your chair; that’s fine. Or try out with headrest pillows or even add side tables to form your beautiful set of furniture outdoors.

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.

Cypress: This popular wood has a beautiful grain and natural oils that protect it from bug infestations, warping, and rotting. A white acrylic stain is often used on cypress Adirondack chairs.
