I actually had started this project before I read this post. Great simple instructions for an easy DIY. :)
One thing I would amend is your comment at the end, as an easy solution is to be had:
"As long as it is a 2 seater swing you can transform any swing. The longer swings do not have the brace in the middle of the swing."
A simple solution for a bench swing (without a center support), is to simply turn your wood slats the other direction. Run the boards up/down rather than across the metal frame. And if you have a stockpile of wood scraps, this may help use wood you already have, as these seats and backs are typically less than 24" deep/high.
I hope this comment can help someone with a bench swing! ;)
