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.
Hey Diane! You definitely want them to be smooth and very clean so the paint will stick. I’m not sure sanding plastic is necessary, but giving them a good scrub is a good idea. If they’re wood, then yes, sand them first. .
According to Mack’s book, Bunnell produced his “Westport Plank Chair” in a basement workshop and sold them for $4 out of a retail store on the town’s main street. By 1912, a version called the “Adirondack Bungalow Chair” was being sold through W.C. Leonard’s department store in Saranac Lake, and copycats soon followed. Bunnell continued to manufacture the chair himself until about 1930, producing variations that included an alternate-facing tête-à-tête version and another that converted to a rocking chair. By the time Bunnell died of pneumonia in March 1933, his chair design had found its way beyond northern New York. The newspaper notice announcing his death hailed him as the “manufacturer of the world-wide known Adirondack camp chair.”

Regardless of intent, the Westport chair’s combination of a slanted back and high, supportive armrests makes it a particularly good seat from which to take a breath, notes Mack. “The chair opens your chest up when you sit in it,” says the author. “It might have been the poor man’s cure chair.”

Let me be clear about what I meant Phil. The plans I have are for “a” tall “adirondack” chair , not “your” specific chairs. I was offering an alternative not trying to undercut you in some way. I have at least 10 different styles of chairs I have gotten plans for over the years, so harm was intended.
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.
I am most certainly not a big enthusiast of art but I cannot help myself but admire these lovely chairs. It is good that you decided to take a picture with one of them, else I might mistake them for a miniature which usually comes in dollhouses, don t you think?
