I don’t know about you but I’ll be spending a good chunk of the summer in our backyard. I can just see myself with a (sometimes adult) beverage in hand watching my kiddos play. It is like a dream…until I realized that there’s no great place to sit! Ya see, we’ve had these disgusting plastic Adirondack chairs for years that leave a white chalky mark on your bee-hind.
If your hauler doesn’t accept the plastic furniture you’re hoping to get rid of, and the furniture isn’t broken, you have a few options to keep it out of the landfill: .
You can place these on your patio, in a shaded part of your garden or under a pergola where you can relax and meditate. This is a family project waiting to happen!
Softwood is a cheaper option and very easy to physically manipulate with tools, so it shouldn’t be dismissed. You could use a selected few varieties of softwoods for Adirondack chairs.

This chair is made from redwood which is one of the most durable and efficient hardwoods commonly used to make patio furniture. This rocking chair displays the natural beauty of lumber and at the same time protects the wood from rain or sun. The plans to make this chair is quite easy to follow however, you must have all the materials and tools handy.
Some types of outdoor furniture, such as the simple, stackable patio chairs with the slightly wobbly legs, are usually made with polypropylene; look for a Resin Identification Code [RIC] number (5) in a triangle on the underside of the furniture. In general, number (5) plastics are sometimes accepted for recycling, but the size and shape of the plastic furniture still usually prohibits it from being recycled curbside.
I have been looking for them for the past 6 months in South Carolina near Charleston without any success. Please let me k ow when they are available. I need 6 navy chairs and 3 small white tables.
I love life and the convenience that comes with it. I’m here to help my tall friends all over the world get what they want when they want it. This is your home, be comfortable!
Cypress is a beautiful wood with straight grains and free from knots. It has a wide color range from light to dark brown.
The first step of the project is to build the seat supports from 1×4 lumber. Mark the cut lines on the slats and then get the job done with a circular saw. Use sandpaper to smooth the edges.
I used SOS pads to clean mine first. The chalky residue came right off with hardly any scubbing. It roughed up the finish and the paint adhered well. They are beautiful and you do not have to wear the color on your tush. 🙂
On the bright side, working with it is such a breeze. It sands, cuts, planes, nails, glues, and screws without too much effort. It is also widely accessible in the US.
This bright yellow Adirondack chair is quite a stunner. Just look at its tall and wide backrest with yellow planks. The seats are yellow, with a touch of red at the feet. The armrests are large and extend to the back.
Check the seat and armrest widths also. Ensure that the seat is very spacious to accommodate your big frame sufficiently.
The seat height is also very impressive at 15 inches, considering it is an Adirondack chair where they normally sit much lower to the ground. In terms of strength and durability, this chair is constructed using Acacia wood. This wood is native to Australia and famous for its high resilience to weather and its load-bearing capacity. Giving this chair a total capacity of 350 LBS.
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.
