There are some amazing blogs out there. And some of them are a very bad influence. They feed my delusion that I can do anything. Cook fabulous meals from scratch. Remodel my home overnight. Train my dog to outshine Lassie. Operate power tools fearlessly.
DIY Adirondack chair, I had only one thought, "Uh-oh, I'm in trouble now."
I'm a long-time admirer of these chairs--love the style, yes, but the comfort! They just may define summer relaxation with their obvious laid-backedness (what else could you call it?). Plus they have that lovely wide arm that's like a mini-table fit for lemonade or fruit smoothies or a morning bowl of cereal while I lounge and admire the waterlilies.
Not that I have the room for another chair--The Big Guy is still in residence accompanied by his sofa bed, recliner, Golden Retriever and patio set--but surely I could fit it in somewhere. The only question is, "What color (this link has a rainbow of chairs) should it be?"
What color would be perfect in your garden? Would you choose soft neutrals or bright primaries or yummy pastels? Do you think a chair has to match your flower palette? These are all Very Important Questions in my on-going search for summer patio perfection. I just wouldn't be able to fully relax if I thought my chair was the wrong color. So...maybe a circle of Adirondacks in all my favorite colors would be the answer?
I think my summer to-do list just got a little longer.
