My parents had their house renovated a month ago and we went there last week to see the finished product. Although it looked way better than how it was before, I can’t help but focus on the mess in the lawn. They have tons of excess materials piling up, most of which are large chunks of wood and logs.
My husband came up with the idea of building something so they can make use of the excess stuff. My daughter suggested a swing and, since my parents can’t say no to her, they agreed. Fortunately, we came across a DIY project for a rustic wooden swing chair.
If you’re looking to boost the wow-factor and whimsy in either your outdoor spaces, there’s nothing quite as cool and unique as a well-styled swing chair. Build one in your backyard and swing to the summer breeze, or prop one up under a tree for statement-making focal point. Aesthetics aside, there’s nothing more comforting than a gentle rocking motion in an outdoor environment.
This was just perfect for my parents’ lawn.
