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.

Acacia is a readily available wood with abundant plantations in most parts of America and the world. For that reason, it is relatively cheaper than some other hardwoods.
Termites are very tiny bugs yet surprisingly wreak unimaginable havoc. They attack wood that is situated anywhere for a significant period of time, damaging it severely in a short period.

Wooden chairs can be hard on your backside. Cushions are usually sold separately, but they can make your Adirondack chairs much more comfortable. You’ll need to make sure the cushion fabric repels water and resists fading in sunlight. Cushions should be removed in the winter months if you plan to leave the chairs outside year-round.
I’m glad you found them comfortable. It’s funny because I’ve seen them around for such a long time & never sat in one. When I finally did, I understood why they are so popular. Costco had the 3 piece set available online. I just checked right now & unfortunately it’s out of stock. It’s $140 off too. Only $399 for Adirondack 2 chairs and the table. It was item number 100381923. Summer is really kicking off early because all these outdoor products are selling fast. I’ll monitor Costco to see if they come back in store or online

Plastic, you get a more modern feel but may look cheap. It’s easy to maintain, and the cost is more affordable.
Dear Joanne: Plastic patio furniture can’t be recycled in your curbside recycle container: Its size and shape make it a likely culprit to jam traditional MRF machinery. However, your waste hauler may accept it, if they offer bulk-waste pick-up or drop-off, as the large items they collect will be handled on a more individual basis.
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.
It naturally flourishes in wet mushy surroundings, rendering itself rot-resistant. Perhaps cypress is often grouped with hardwoods because of its slow maturity rate, making it scarce and consequently raising its prices.
Would you believe that the materials and hardware used to build this Adirondack chairs cost only $10, maybe even less? This chair was made from recycled wooden pallets which were sanded and cut accordingly.
