Salvaged Yard Swing

orcascoveJuly 29, 2008

Back in May, I posted these 2 pictures asking for suggestions on what material to use to replace the canopy and cushions because of weather dry rot, on a swing my neighbor threw out.

Thanks to all who sent advice.!!!

Ok, so the swing has finally been completed, what's everyone think? I had no idea what I was doing, but I think it turned out ok. Lots better then when I got it anyway. LOL!!!

Your swing turned out very nice. I agree it looks much better now than it did before. Nice job and I hope you get to enjoy it now that it's done.

Better hide it from the neighbor!

Thanks everyone, I was really happy with how it turned out. And it sits great. But I think it will be quite some time before I try another one. I only have a small simple sewing machine, and while I was able to make the canopy completely with it, I had to hand sew alot for the cushions. My fingers are still not happy with me. LOL!!!
