Harriet Outdoor Dining Chair with Cedar Slats

Submitted by kmatt55 on Sun, 06/26/2011 - 16:49

This chair was pretty easy to make with Ana's plans. I plan on making four more just like it (updated: completed). The only modification I made was adding another slat to the back of the chair. I used a miter saw for all cuts which really helped with the speed of the project. The 2x2's are treated pine and the 1x3 slats are cedar that I got from the "orange box store" for about four bucks a stick. I also primed and painted the 2x2's (legs) before I assembled. I could not imagine trying to paint the legs white and not getting at least some on that beautiful cedar. The contrast really pops in person. Thanks ana-white.com! $20 per chair.

I love that you added the extra slat on the back. Such a simple change that made a big impact. The contrast is also very clever! They look great :)

Thanks CreativeBaggage! I finished the dining table yesterday, I'll have to post that soon. As a couponer myself, I really like the standing can rack you made on your blog. Brilliant!
