Saved a pair of adirondacks from the landfill a few weeks ago. Finally found someone to buy them and they wanted the chairs painted black. I thought the idea was crazy since it would be so hot in the summer, but I think the chairs look awesome in front of the house so my next chairs may end up black! haha

It’s always a good feeling when I can save something from the landfill and let someone put it to use!

As the immature girls say these days “Black hair, don’t care,” I say, “Black Chair, Don’t Care!!!” hahaha

Pink with polka dots? Now you’re pushing it! My wife has a thing for black furniture. Drives me nuts but I ‘ll take it over pink polka dots anyday!

Pink polka dots, nah… hahaha I do like the look of black furniture as long as there isn’t some nice lumber under that paint… This was a mixture of PT pine, southern yellow pine and cypress so it really needed paint anyway.

Have your say...
