Who doesn't love an Adirondack chair? This set of Caribbean blue chairs is the second set that we've built. We got simple plans from the internet (free!) and made them using plain pine lumber. Easy, easy, easy! The first set we built I painted in a bright royal blue - kind of like the Pacific ocean! But I knew I needed time in the Caribbean this time around. Our patio is very comfortable and a wonderful place to spend the evening with friends. We light our torches and firepit and sometimes pretend we're contestants on Survivor!
Up from the tumbled paver patio we installed is our deck. This is our dining area during the summer months. The deck is surrounded by Aspens and Lilacs and is very private and quiet. Unfortunately, the deck is failing and will be need to be removed in the next few years. We're planning on extending the paver patio and incorporate a bubbling fountain and even thinking about putting in a sandbox/small play fort for our grandkids in the corner of the patio. What do you think?

Jaye L on Jul 28, 2012Yea, they're not the comfy-ist! And I just don't think they look all that great with a cushion on them. But they're easy to build and on the budget which is why I think we've built two sets of them! Sigh...one of these days I'll have some luxurious overstuffed patio furniture to relax out on!! Thanks for commenting!
