Other half was complaining that our oh so yellow chairs weren’t comfy enough to snooze on, so I went online to shop for a sun lounger…
And found them either very pricy, or cheap and naff looking (thin fabric). So, instead I figured I’m make one. 😀
Got saw, wood, nails and screws – what could go wrong?
Actually – nothing did. Hahahahahah! Oh yes, it won’t win a prize for best looking (or most symmetrical!) sun lounger – but it’ll do. Other half was well amused as I was swearing and grunting… but in the end all I needed help with was to get a handful of screws properly screwed in.
It’s got four different settings for the back, plus flat… and as I figured it would be so heavy (and I’m just about as strong as 5 year old girl), I made it in two sections, so I can move it myself.
Stained it to make it look like it’s been there for a while. If it had been nicely done and with sanded wood, I would have liked it white, but as it stands I don’t want to notice it too much! 😀
Of course I couldn’t leave it just brown-ish… so I added a couple of “speed stripes”.
The four-legged ones absolutely love it… and to be honest so do I. And even the other half, after having had a rest on it, had no choice but to agree it’s actually quite fab.
Aaaaaaand – I have to say – the little brush I used on it did amazing! I used a small Daler-Rowney brush (from a set) not just for the stripes (both acrylic and oil based paint)… but I also used it to stain the whole blooming sun lounger! The brush didn’t loose a single hair – and that’s not nicely sanded wood. Well impressed.
