New garden chair

UPS brought my new chair this afternoon. I just finished putting it together. Now I have to tighten the bolts and hope for the best. Of course one bolt was wanky but we'll see how it works. At first I didn't think I could get my big butt in the seat but once together I think it will be fine. lol I'm going to sit it down by the garden folly in the orchard where I already have an antique wrought iron bench that the paint has become naturally "chippy". The new one is purposely painted to resemble a distressed finish. Or maybe I'll sit the chair inside the folly, esp. in the Fall when I know I'll be using the structure the most.

Thank you. I can hardly wait to put it down there. Now I'm thinking I might lay a small area of stone pavers for it and the bench to sit on. Except the original idea was to keep it natural there, but I guess I can let the grass grow up between the stones.
