Topic tags/keywords: question rustic

I have some leftover fence slats and I was looking at them
And thinking about making a new chair for outside. I thought
About making them smooth but I got to thinking after
Staring at them for a while (winter boredom) that I kinda like
The mill marks and might just leave them. Seems kind of a lazy
Approach but what is some of your opinions on this. I have an old
Adirondack that has weathered quite a bit and my wife loves it.
I wanted to refinish it but she says NO! I tend to agree with her
I really like the rough weathered look. What’s your thoughts?
Thanks

I guess I’m not a fan of rough chairs. On tables you can get away w/ it a little better. If you like the look I guess it is ok if it doesn’t give you splinters or tears at your clothes.

Yea that makes sense. Didn’t think about that.

Though if you do a little sanding and put a nice finish
On them I think you can still maintain the splinters
And protect your bottom and clothes.
