DIH Adirondack Chairs and Table

Submitted by ktprinkey on Thu, 07/09/2015 - 13:26

I built 4 chairs total. A set for my mother and another for my mother-in-law for Mothers Day. The first set I built are the green ones with the cushions. The second set are the stanined chairs. The second set went a little easier than the first because I learned from my mistakes. What I did differently on the second set was mainly to sand and stain before assembling. I had a hard time getting in between all of the nooks on the painted chairs. I ended up using my paint sprayer to paint them because it was just going to take forever otherwise. The side table was very easy and straightforward. No issues there. All in all a pretty easy project. Both moms were very pleased with their gift! Thank you Ana and Home Depot once again for the awesome plans!!
