    How did you make the lampshade? It's so cute!

    OMG this is so pretty!! Do you have it hanging from that big oak tree behind it? It must be a very heavy swing. I Love the whole look and wish I had a tree like that. I too would love to know how you made your lamp shade or if you bought it somewhere??? I might try making a swing like yours but will have to also build a frame to hang it from. Thanks for sharing it's beautiful as well as your yard too!

    Pallets are made to be disposable, you wouldn't catch me sitting on this! You'd be on your butt by the end of the first season. All that work wasted.
