This year instead of ringing in the new year with champagne and a long list of resolutions we (in our true makers spirit) decided to unleash our inner children and hang our very own indoor swing!
We both love how simplistic the swing turned out and how it’s a great conversation piece but isn’t so radical that it becomes the main focal point of our home.
We figure we’re pretty safe on this homemade swing because we used hardware that can hold up to 500 lbs, rope 700 lbs and a sturdy piece of red oak for the seat. It only cost us 15 dollars and the installation was a breeze because we chose to hang it under our easy to reach stairs. We intend on painting a fun swing themed message on the burlap that we draped over an ugly heater door. Something like “mood swing” or “swingers only” seems appropriate. Leave your suggestions in the comments section. For Andrea this swing serves as a reminder that life may have it’s ups and downs but that shouldn’t stop you from trying your hardest to get as high as you can. That’s my girl ;)
For me this swing serves as a reminder to create things that make us happy, the kind of half terrified-half thrilled happy that only a swing can give you!
Cheers to a happy and fun 2012!
