Swing restoration AKA Saving an old friend's life.


I've had this swing for 20 years. I bought it while living in Las Vegas (another life time ago), where rain is little and the chance of rust is nill. But, 18 years ago we moved to Ohio. New story. Rain! Snow! Rust!

Every year requires spot painting to touch up rust and decay. We had neglected it for a few years and I had to pay the piper or lose this huge swing.
