Wanted to share this project I worked on. The chairs were done late last year. Just couldn’t find the time to make the covers for the cushions so I ended up farming it out. This is the end result. Chairs are made from 1×4 and 1×6 white boards. Worked from a plan. First time at making chairs.

Nice work – the problem we have with our morris chairs is getting out of them and getting on with it – enjoy!

Really nice chairs. How do you go about finding someone to make the cushions? And on the arm of the one in the pic we see the back of, is that a thimble or a very small flower pot or wrong on both guesses ?

I think I be liking these a bit more than the typical Adirondack chairs. I like the painted look and nice color combo with cushions.

Thanks for all the great comments. NorthGaMan: I cut all cushions to size, ordered material on line(no tax and free shipping), found upholsterer to sew it up. It is a mini flower pot with a citronella candel inside. Innovator : Finish is left over trim paint from when we had the house painted.Sprayed on one coat primmer and two top coats. (Wife bought me an HVLP for b-day last year)
After she saw the cushions on she said, ” OK honey ! They look great. But don’t you think they could use a couple of side tables.” Well the only response was, “Yes Dear.”

It’s a large thimble made from a small flower pot with an even smaller drainage hole to stab your finger .LOL anyway I like the chairs lovely colours too on the chairs and on the cushions.

Great idea for some outdoor seating! Has my mind turning now as to how they would look out on our deck.
