    Wife's Adirondack Chairs

    About 5-6 years ago, I made the wife a pair of Adirondack Chairs for her birthday(surprise). This was my first official try at wood working. Wasn't all that bad. Built it using Cedar wood, and applied a clear-coat to the natural finish. Over time, the clear-coat degraded. I was going to re-apply, but wife said she'd like something, in the yard, that would "pop". So, I pressure washed the chairs and applied an oil based primer(Kiltz). One chair is to be Red, and the other Yellow. I applied a first & second coat to one of the chairs during the week.

    Today, after completing a few yard chores, I finished the third coat of Apple Red paint to one chair.

    No. Don't think I didn't try. She said, "We already have plenty enough Green & Yellow around here".

    No such thing!!
    If man had enough horse sense to treat his wife like a Thoroughbred, she'd never grow into an old nag.

    If you climb in the saddle, be ready for the ride!

    Reminds me of the time I took the tire and wheel off my trailer to get a flat fixed. They guy looked at it, and said: "Hmmmm. Yellow rim. John Deere. That's going to be expensive."

    Nice work fly, I am not sure it is a good idea letting your wife know that you are that handy though. I did that about 25 years ago and 2 houses later and more projects than I care to mention with more on the list and so on and on and on.......
