Lost count how many Adirondacks I’ve made. This is an order from a customer who not only picked out the paint but emailed me the color number so Lowes could fill it while I got the wood.

They picked out great colors. I think I’ll make a few more of these for the front yard.

Used my Chicago sprayer on these. Took about an hour with clean-up. Nice little sprayer.

These are cedar. I can and do make pine as well, but it has to be painted or sealed before I’ll let it go.

I like a straight ottoman, the curved ottomans don’t work on straight legs.

Thanks for looking.

Thanks guys. The paint was thinned with a latex paint thinner which enabled it to flow better out of the sprayer. But you still need to have the sprayer filled over half way to pump it out without splatter. Latex is thick. I wish I could get a gravity feed sprayer to fit my rig.

Great looking Adirondacks! Your choices of colors really adds a Spring time pizzazz.
