Dry-Brushed Adirondack Chairs

In year's past my husband gave me these Adirondack Chairs for our Anniversary and I decided to give them a paint job.  I had some leftover paint from other projects so I put it to good use and simply dry brushed it onto these chairs.  I love the look of dry-brushing, it allows the wood to peek through and give a nice "aged" appearance and its a very easy process.
I gave these chairs a quick sanding, cleaned off any of the dust and gave them a once over with paint.  You can apply your paint in a couple different ways.  For this project I added a little bit of water to the paint and used a rag to rub it onto the chair, it's a lot quicker than using a paintbrush.  I finished them off with a couple coats of polyurethane.  I love the way they turned out.
