Ski Lift Backyard Swing


Picked up a ski lift chair when the local slope upgraded. Used a frame from a yardsale find and elevated it with some tubing my dad had in his garage. Added a coat of paint and some cushions and we've got a swing. The lantern in the final picture is a repurposed bird feeder and the stand is a wood crate with old porch spindles used for legs. I call this my repurpose corner.
