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.

This outdoor furniture is perfect for quiet afternoons.

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. It was perfect for my parents’ lawn.
