What is the best way to repurpose an old rusted two seater swing ?

The frame is rusted but still strong -- all weather seats are worn.

    If you want to use it, you could clean up the rust and replace the seats with wood finished with a good outdoor sealer. If you don't want to use it a swing, still clean off the rust and seal it with a good outdoor sealer then use the center section for potted plants. You'll probably have to replace the seats, but you could try cleaning them up then painting them before using that outdoor sealer.

    Good luck!

      Thank you Linda for your idea. I have considered sanding it and spraying it with some Rusteoleum spray paint but wasn't sure what to do about the seats. If not worn through I may just buy a new all weather cushion to lay on the entire seating area. Thanks again!

    And that's a great idea too. I actually thought of that but I thought the seats were too worn. It would be cute filled with flowers, but that would be a lot of work! Good luck!

    You could renovate or you could give it legs and re-purpose as Seat and use frame to make Arbour or Arch or Frame for Runner Beans etc..................
