Free Porch Swing I got off's like new!

nicole__July 18, 2014

I got a FREE swing off CL. People throw them away when the seat falls apart.

Here's the sling seat I made:

Then I took old couch cushions, cut the foam into 4" slabs, glued them together with 3M spray glue...and covered the cushions with Sunbrella fabric($7.95 a yd). I used "Meander Dune" for the cushions & "Dimone Flame" for the pillows: (

Note: The polyester wrapping on two of the cushions is what the pillows are stuffed with.

Note: The little side tables, 1 was FREE off CL, 1 was a thrift store find for $6 that I spray painted w/ Sandstone textured paint.

So all you had to do was make the seat & cushions! Came out great! That should last a long time. You did a beautiful job on it! Enjoy! Jan
