Unwind in your yard with a DIY wood porch swing with cup holders!

Porch Swing Bench

Do you enjoy hanging out on your porch? Well, lazy summer days and breezy evenings out there are better when there’s a swaying porch swing in which to lean back, relax, and while away the time.

There’s no shortage of porch swings in furniture shops, but you can have the added satisfaction of a job well done should you decide to build one yourself, instead.

Having swing furniture is one of the best ideas you can add to your outdoor area.
