Ideas For Outdoor Swing

There are quite a few ideas for creating your own swing with little to no effort or funds. If you want a simple swing you will only need a sturdy wide wooden plank, a drill and a piece of rope. Drill a hole at each corner of the plank and fix it with the rope to a tree or any structure that would allow it. You can use a pallet instead of plank or go with a legless chair or an old tire.

If you want something more spacious where you can really stretch your legs and relax think making a swing bed but be sure that you have a really good and sturdy structure to hang it on because a bed can be quite heavy and swinging it might fall down together with the flimsy construction.

The swing bench or bed can be made of old bed frame. If bench will suffice you can just add a back made out of an old door. For the bed you’ll need a mattress, which will add weight to your swing and some throw pillows for comfort and decor value.

To decorate your swing upholster it with colorful fabric or fill it with accent pillows. To disguise the unflattering chain or rope wrap it with a nice fabric or faux vines. You can also give your swing a fresh coat of bright paint.
