Pallet Swing!!!

Pallet Swing!!!

Pallet Swing-IMG_5304

When the patio addition to the pond was finished, we had some pallets leftover!


Hubby was going to trash them and I said “oh no we’re not“….

“I want to build a pallet swing with them”!! IMG_5309

He looked at me like I’d lost my mind (although he denies that now!)!!


Once he was on board, he didn’t have instructions but, that didn’t stop him!!

He cut one of the pallets down and added supports to the sides and back.

I sanded it down so there were no rough spots or splinters….

….painted it black….


And hung it in the tree (which was really the most difficult part because our trees are sooooo tall)!


It’s perfect to sit and look at the pond and listen to the fountain and waterfall!


Do you see that small footstool under the swing?

  It’s too small (and leather) so it can’t stay outside.

  I’ve asked hubby to build me a small footstool from our leftover pallet wood so shorter people, or children can step on it and help them up, or, rest their feet on it!  More on that when it’s done!


Cost of this one of a kind swing…..approx $50 for paint and hardware!

The joy and pleasure of building something together…..priceless!!

If your interested in building a pallet swing of your own and have any questions or would like more details, please let me know! I’ll have the hubby email you the play-by-play!


Until next time……
