Wedding Gift.....

My granddaughter and her husband are back from their honeymoon. They went to St Luces .  Ted made this set of Adirondack chairs and foot stools for their wedding gift. Lynzie has asked for them before, we told her get married first. LOL. They are made of cedar and can be painted or stained or left to turn a natural gray.
 This is not the actual set, but theirs is just the same. Ted uses the same pattern on all the sets he makes.  You can see that tiny walkway we had that the grass grew over. So skinny, could not walk on that. That is where we made our all brick walkway, last year.
  It is foggier than London , right now. We are waiting for the fog to burn off, to go. I for one do not like pulling a trailer in fog.  Hope your day is fun.  xo

  2. I would be torn about painting the adirondacks or letting them age gracefully. I think I would go with the aging in the end.

    1. Our daughter stained her a really warm honey oak color. We let ours age naturally. That way you never have to scrap and paint every so often. xoxo,Susie
