You heard me degrade those plastic Adirondack style chairs around our new firepit a few posts ago, when I mentioned I had a new little project up my sleeve. I have been desperately seeking out a more modern take on the classic comfortable solid wood Adirondack- but most of my options would have set me back $1200+ for four chairs.
So I found a few photos here and there and we designed our own, for only about $150 total for cedar, sandpaper, and stain. It probably took about 3 hours per chair of cutting, drilling, assembling, sanding, and staining. Plus a little extra time for the whole designing process. I can't take credit for any of this except for the initial brainstorming. I was way too busy in the garden to spare any time for building these. ;)
Not sure why it took me so long to post about these beauties, considering we've been enjoying them for at least a month now. They are pretty comfy to sit in as is, but I think some custom cushions with outdoor fabric would really finish them off and make them super comfortable.
