One thing that I have to mention with this chair is the sheer number of color varieties it has. Most companies will offer a couple like 5 -6 which is great. This company has gone above and beyond offering a total of 18 different colors so there’s most likely something for your outdoor setting. .
The swing must be made of light but durable materials so wood pallets are the best thing. And of course, waterproofing or weatherproofing is very important because this will remain outdoors exposed to the elements.
Next, you need to attach the 1×2 slats to the seat supports. You can adjust the size of the seat to suit your needs. Moreover, round the edges of the slats with a router before fitting them to the supports, for extra character. Drill pilot holes at both ends of the slats and insert 1 1/4″ screws to lock them into place tightly. Countersink the head of the screws for a professional result.
Overall I can’t really fault this chair, maybe the assembly could be easier but that’s not a big deal either. It’s oversized and very heavy duty which is what us plus size people need in an Adirondack chair. Also comes in a nice natural selection of colors, Weathered Acorn being our best pick.
Love your idea and the color! Went out and bought the exact same color (satin lagoon). I scrubbed my 2 chairs with a brush and used the hose to rinse and let them dry for hours before painting. Ran out of paint before finishing my second chair. Had to wait about 2-3 weeks to finish a little bit of touch up on 1st chair (due to back problems). I waited at least 3 weeks before even thinking about sitting on it. I also kept it in the garage for several days to dry right after spraying it (so it wouldn’t get rained on). I used an old towel to dry off the raindrops and noticed blue paint! Now I’m afraid to let anyone sit on it. I didn’t use primer. Any suggestions?
I sprayed painted my brown resin wicker chairs white! The white is flaking off. How do I get this white paint off? I decided to leave it brown! Please help. I was told to use a pressure washer to take it off.
The seats are adequately slanted at the back, all the good qualities of a true Adirondack chair design. And aside from getting plans to make these seats, you also get a free plan to make the table between the two seats. You will not just be making seats but a complete seating section!

Without any treatment, it can last for up to a decade. So you can only imagine how long it will live if you treat it.

“If I were a geneticist, I would say they would be different species of the same family,” says Craig Gilborn, former director at the Adirondack Museum, now known as the Adirondack Experience, in Blue Mountain Lake. Gilborn pointed out the similarity between the cure chair and the Lee-Bunnell “Westport chair” in his book, Adirondack Furniture and the Rustic Tradition.
There is no easy answer to why Adirondack chairs are so expensive. A lot goes into the design of these chairs which I believe is a big part of the reason that do seem to cost more than others. Their design isn’t a simple basic design like most others, so their manufacturing process is more difficult.

We have cheap wood adirondacks from Ho Po that have been repaired, but they were wood. I guess I'm stuck in the middle about those.
