Adirondack-inspired lawn chair.

I'm just so proud of hubby's first woodworking project for me that I couldn't help but brag about it on my blog. A couple of weeks ago, he completed a lovely Adirondack-inspired wooden lawn chair painted with Lavish Lavender by Sherwin Williams. I have always wanted to have my own wooden lawn chair specifically Adirondack style. And I saw one at Costco but thought too ordinary for the price. I got lucky that I have a handyman husband. He said he will build one for me. And I thought that would be fun. I helped him pick the color of the paint. I googled for some inspiration and lo and behold, I found this beautiful purple colored lawn chair that I thought I must have, lol! I was really excited and thrilled on how this project would turn out.

He had spent most of his weekends and a few hours after work for like almost a month to complete this project. I know he enjoys woodworking a lot so even that alone was really worth it.

Personally, I think there's really something special about a furniture that's designed and made specially for you. And that's exactly how I feel about the whole thing. I mean from the paint color down to the right angle of the chair's back was made for my comfort and style.

I really really love the way the chair came out. I know that hubby loves woodworking and he had done some pretty cool stuff before we met but I mean this is the first time that he has done one for me. And I must say I was definitely blown away. There's no denying that it was one great quality furniture and of course the labor of love was there. Aside from the lavishly pretty paint color, lol! I love how sturdy it is. It's built to last for a very long time. I am just so glad I didn't settle for a ready-made, cheap-quality chair from the store. This is definitely way more better. I can see love written all over this furniture, lol!

Ok, enough said! Let me share with you more pics of my new chair. Now I have more reason to look forward to next year's summer season, lol! Luv it!
