Pallet Swing

235,171 Views
We had a few pallets leftover from our backyard projects and decided to build a pallet swing with them!
A couple leftover pallets...
We cut down the back....
Used carriage bolts to attach and support the back...
Painted it black....
Attached chain with eye hooks and lock clips....
Hung it and added some pillows....
Wonderful place to sit and enjoy the pond...
....read a book and listen to the birds!

    @Lillian Chapman ....Thanks! it is actually a grapevine spiral wreath that I bought at Hobby Lobby.....took apart and tied onto my lamp shade with jute string! Any type of bendable twig would work...just make sure it's smaller than normal grapevine. Hope this helps!!
