Default Jim's Jack and Jill chair

G'day, i'm posting this for Dad, who is having troubles with his eyes at present. He's almost finished his chair and its looking great. He says it needs one more coat of paint.

Cheers Mike - posting on behalf of Jim :-).

Jim,

Your eyes must be better than mine if you think it needs another coat of paint, it looks great from here.

Neat design, and I am fond of that color!

This is the kind of simple, straight forward project I really love. Nothing like sitting out with your sweetie, sipping a toddy or coffee and talking as the sun goes down. Thanks for sharing it.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Hi All,just to clarify,I had finished the second coat of paint prior to this latest dry eye problem (which is improving every day)& only just got Mike to put the photos on the Forum for me.The brand of paint is Solar Guard & the colour is "blue nun" but I cant guarantee the name as it was typed on a sticker over the label.Thanks for all the suggestions regarding the various paints & colours etc. however I finally used the left-over Solarguard from the tool shed job. Best wishes,Jamesjj
