Porch Swing

The joys of summer, would you enjoy your summer more if you could swing lazily in the afternoons on your very own porch swing?
For years we have purchased porch swings sold at Lowes or Home Depot… The fact that they would last for a year or two and then fall apart, was wearing on me pretty hard. I just could not see throwing our money into another cheap piece of landfill. Buying the replacement cushions, cost me as much as buying a whole new swing. Then what do you do with the old frames that are left?

With some thorough internet searching, we decided on a style and went for it. ¬†The plan we chose were pretty simple, made out of all 2×4’s. We adjusted to fit our needs and within a couple of days we had the swing of our dreams.
