Oh I'm so happy with how my renovated deck chairs turned out. Mum rescued the originals from Council pickup and all I had to do was sand them back, stain them, make 2 new 'slings' and staple them on. A normal person would expect it to take one, maybe two days. Call it a weekend. But these beauties took me 20 months to complete; during which time we moved cities and had a baby. I can't even tell you how glad I was to cross them off the to-do list! Please tell me I'm not alone in my well-intentioned but snail's pace DIY.
P.S. that's Molly the schnauzer looking not-so-impressed.
