Happy Mother's Day to me!

We have been looking for some new chairs for the front porch. The ones we have now are plastic adriondack chairs that are about 16 years old!  I wanted to paint them but DH didn't like the idea.  To buy chairs, they are about $100 each!  Ouch!  Well this weekend we were at HD trying to decide what to do with the paver patio and look what we spied!  Yup adriondack chairs!  You put them together and they were $29.98 ea!  Score.  
I am staining them black with Minwax Polyshades!  Here is one before and one during!  
They will need another coat, but I had to stop today to go pick up DD.  You can see the side yard garden in the background.  Where the chairs are will be a sort of floating paver patio with river rock surrounding it.

Here is the black chair.
On another note, first tomatoes!

Have a great week!
