Different Chairs

My wonderful husband and I have been talking about getting Adirondack chairs for several years.  We just could never find a design we both liked.  This spring, one of our local hardware stores brought in three different Adirondack chair styles.  We tried them all.  I liked the one that is made of recycled plastics.  WH liked the one that is made of wood and pre-painted.  We each got the style we liked choosing different colors and they are set up on the patio.  WH had to assemble his.  Mine was ready to go.  Mine is green.  His is blue.  The glider that has been on our patio for years is now by the vegetable garden.
