My Director @ work wanted a Birthday present for her husband and asked me to build him an Adirondack style Patio chair. He’s a big Cigar smoker and loves Vodka Gimlets too so she asked if I could Paint it with some kind of a theme that would have a Caribbean look to it and incorporate Cigars and Gimlets. Here’s what I came up with. Made from re-cycled “Pallet Pine” and Painted with 3 coats of Rustoleum Pro Oil based Paint. Custom made the paint color ( 2 cups Gloss white and 1/2 cup Gloss Royal Blue) Used the PreVal Spray system to spray it. My Supervisor’s Wife is an Artist/Art Instructor and she did the Art work with Acrylic Enamel. I then applied 3 coats of automotive Clear Coat to protect the art work. I think it came out pretty good.
