Margie’s Fir Adirondack Chair Project

Margies-Fir-Adirondack-Chair600The following was an email sent in by Margie:
“Picture of an Adirondack chair made by my husband (painted by myself!) with fir purchased from Windsor Plywood in Langley.”

Our reply: “Hello Margie
Thank you for sending in the picture of the Adirondack chair. It looks like a fantastic project and the painting was very professional.
Question: Is this the same Margie that was the door winner for the My Windsor Project contest? Would love to see a picture of Adirondack chair in front of the new door.
I will submit the picture to the blog for July 27th posting. Thank you Woody Wall, Blog Editor”

The next day, we received this email:
“Here are some pictures of the chair with the front of the house.  front-of-house-with-chairs-600I usually have it under the Maple tree beside the turquoise bench (that way when we sit outside, we get shade).  I do intend to make a second chair for the other side of the bench and likely will paint it the same colour.
Thanks for the painting compliment.  I do all the painting and no, I am not a professional—just lots of practice and I enjoy doing it.

We’ve had tons of compliments about the door and the Pedra decking.  Thanks.

BTW—the cedar posts will be stained black Front-of-house-with-Chair-and-Bench-320 front-of-house-with-red-Adirondack-chair-320later this summer—they had to weather for a year first.  Plus I’m hoping for less heat.  And, if you look closely those are indeed hockey sticks sticking out of the cream can by the door.  My son plays hockey—I figured if they had to be kept on the porch by the door, they might as well look good being there.  I’m waiting for an epiphany about the newspaper recycle and then that will change!

When I’m done all that, I’ll likely be back at Windsor bugging Brad about the next project!”
