Refurbished Beachy Adirondack Chairs

Remember my awesome neighbor that threw away his grill?  Well, he got such a kick out of the fact that we brought new life to it that he periodically began offering us some of his other "Junk".

Just before we moved, he cleaned out his yard and offered us these incredible chairs.




They needed a good power-wash and a little repair on one arm, but they were sturdy and ready for a new chapter as Chesapeake Beach Chairs.

Here they are AFTER:


Aren't the crabs cute?

  4. Great job of refurbishing. Less junk in the world. My daughter is on the lookout for new outdoor chairs and rockers for the porch and yard at their new house. Going to tell her about this idea.

    Keep writing...
