While we were in Michigan, we were admiring my brother-in-law’s Adirondack chairs, and thinking that might be a nice addition to the patio. He said he built them from a kit.
Well, wouldn’t you know… I saw the new flyer from Jo-Ann’s for the sale that started yesterday. And right there, for 40% off, were solid cedar Adirondack chairs. Rockers, no less. So I stopped on my way home from the Japanese Knitting class I had yesterday and picked up a couple. Only $45 each. We probably couldn’t get the wood for that price, even if we could find cedar in the right thickness. The Pontiff had them assembled in a flash. Sure, they’re not quite as nice as some we’ve seen – more slats on the back would make them a bit more comfortable. But it’s a great deal for the price.
Now I just need to do a little staining. (They come in unstained or whitewashed.)
Happy Birthday, Mim!
