Swinging Chair

14K Views
Here is what I did with a old chair my neighbor was going to burn because it had broken legs. Well for this project I didn't need the legs. It now hangs in my cherry tree in my front yard.

    Teri, this is a neat idea and its now on my list of projects. The addition of the back seems it would be so much more comfortable. I think I will put the extra two holes in the seat for added security to hold it.

    @TJ The chair is really strong and have had many people swing in it. To balance it out the rope had to be on the backside and also makes it easier to get into too. It also had decorated wood that comes down on the seat, and I didn't want to put holes

    Very nice idea! Could you imagine cutting a circle and inserting a flower pot or a bowl for a bird bath. You could have a number of these hanging from the same tree. Thank you for sharing!

      @Mary Langner I freshened up my swinging chair and did put a hole in it. So when my flower is done blooming I will replace it with a bird bath for all my birdies.

    I freshened up my hanging chair and made a hole in the seat for my flower pot.
