Thanks so much for the tutorial! I am so going to try this on m lawn chairs! I might even use the same colors as you did!
The Red Rocker is a classic Adirondack chair that is designed to be a rocking chair. It has the classic large backrest with long and wide arms. The seat is curved at the back as it keeps your feet from the ground at the front. .
This is a very unique and beautiful chair as well as a neat replication of the historical chair made by Thomas Lee in 1903. Our Westport chair seat is made with five slat boards for better water drainage rather than using only two like the original historical chair. Our 9 1/4" inch wide arms and beautiful solid one piece back are made just like the original Westport. Available in Mahogany wood only.
These are awesome! I love that you used a pattern for the pieces. I have no doubt your entire family will enjoy the nice weather…when it finally arrives, in your new chairs! Pinned!
While some stories depict Bunnell in a negative light for patenting the chair, Lee's great-great nephew noted in the Sun Community News story that Lee was already wealthy, so he wasn't interested in starting a chair-making business. Indeed, Lee was more focused on bottling and delivering mountain spring water from the Adirondacks.
Especially designed to go along with our SeaAira style furniture, but works great with other styles also.
Usually left outside, these chairs are subject to the elements, and with that comes rain, sun, heat, wind and any other crazy form of weather your geographic location can throw at them. In terms of heat, this is one of the biggest problems when it comes to plastic adirondack chairs.

As the weather starts to warm up we start to think about spending more time outside. We decided that this year we want to build Adirondack chairs from scratch. Building your own Adirondack chairs has to be better than spending a small fortune on them, right? We tease a friend of ours for spending over $500 on new Adirondack chairs. Lucky for us, we found free plans to build Adirondack chairs online which makes this project so much easier.
A big Adirondack chair is the only way to go as a tall person. Check the following measurements which will definitely give a clue, generally. Seat Height – 16 inches off the ground Depth – 35 inches Seat Width – 23 inches Back height – 34-40 inches Armrest height – 23 inches
Lots of small everyday household products, such as milk jugs, are made with HDPE. When you put those HDPE products in your recycling container, they’re often recycled into bigger everyday household products, such as trashcans, or — you guessed it — outdoor furniture. In the case of HDPE, the recycling process is sometimes referred to as “downcycling” because the original HDPE experiences some changes to its basic property types during the recycling process, and can’t be recycled a second time (when it’s in its outdoor furniture form).
Before deciding on a chair material, consider how much maintenance you’re willing to put into the chairs. It might be worth spending the extra money for teak or polywood to minimize your maintenance requirements. If you’re willing to refinish the wood every year and keep the chairs covered when they’re not in use, you can get an inexpensive set of Adirondack chairs.
What is the store address in Vegas? I will be there this week and I would like to try and see if I can get some. Thank you.
This one from the Woodworker’s Journal is more polished and professional, and in fact, is a video build of the PDF we linked to earlier. You can find it here
Hey Becky, Did you clean the chairs really well before applying? This hasn’t happened to me, but I’m sorry you are having trouble. It may very much depend on how old the plastic is and if it is able to absorb the paint. Also did you happen to use a primer?
