The Uwharrie Original Adirondack Ottoman is hand-crafted of solid pressure-treated pine that is insect- and rot-resistant and is milled from an American renewable resource. The pine is heavy 1-inch-thick lumber kiln-dried after it has been treated and all hardware is stainless steel. All paints used to coat the products are latex enamel should you choose to add some color to your outdoor seating. Choose from a large array of colors with finish options in Natural; or Pristine for a flat, full-coverage finish; or Wash for a distressed, wiped finish. This Leg rest perfectly complements our Uwharrie Original Adirondack Chair. Dimensions: 22.5L x 21W x 15H inches.
Natural - No paint or finish. It will weather to silvery gray over time if not treated. Using a varnish or latex enamel will help delay the weathering process. A Natural wood look.
Wash Finish - 1 coat of paint with heavy sanding over the entire piece. You can expect to see the wood grain through the paint. The look has a washed look with some distressing.
Pristine Finish - 3 coats of paint covering the entire surface, no sanding or distressing. This finish is very clean looking with a more solid painted look.
About Materials Used in Uwharrie Furniture
Many outdoor furniture products carry environmental objections such as tropical lumber harvesting that devastates rainforests and threatens endangered species or plastics disposal that is harmful to the environment. The Uwharrie Chair Company offers pressure-treated pine as a simple alternative to imported teak, painted metal or hardwood, and molded plastic. Treated lumber offers distinct advantages over other traditional outdoor materials. It is insect- and rot-resistant, it may be stained, painted, or left natural, and it is milled from plantation-grown Southern pine, a renewable resource.
The Uwharrie Unique Finish and How It Will Age
The wood used in Uwharrie chairs requires no additional protection from exposure to weather. This is why it's possible to distress the finish, giving the furniture the appearance of time-worn antiques. As Uwharrie products age naturally, their rustic character will be enhanced. You should expect to see some additional loss of paint and some surface cracking; exposed wood will eventually turn dark. But even as nature matures your furniture, the wood and the product will remain structurally sound for years to come.
