Screen porch seating/daybed

When we built our porch, I envisioned a swinging bed...But because of the location it needed to be stationary. My husband followed my "demand" kind request to make it look like it was swinging but also look nautical! I live here 3 seasons out of the year!

The view from the daybed!

    Is there any info on how the "daybed" was made?

      It's a fake hanging bed! It's a wood platform my husband made and we added the ropes for a decorative look. Sinetimeswehave3 ppl sitting watching a movie or football game and we didn't have enough ceiling beams in the right place to handle the weight!
