I plan to purchase two body pillows, one for the back rest of the swing and one for the seat. I want it to look very country. They have bed spreads at Walmart that look like a hand made quilt. It will be easy to cut large pieces out to make pillow cases. The Wedding Ring design would be perfect, but I’ll use something else if I have too.
I found the design in 2×4 Projects for Outdoor Living by Stevie Henderson & Mark Baldwin. It gives you a materials list and instructions on how to put it together. My husband said he improved on the design in places! Lol (laugh out loud), all I know is it’s wonderful and I can’t wait to take the first swing.
We still have to put the header board up between the two trees that will hold my porch swing. This is supposed to be and easy fix… we’ll see. :~ My yard is starting to look so beautiful.
At our July Wedding…
Did this turn out great! I have not yet worked on the pillow seats. The tree drips pitch so I’m not sure the pillow seat would be a good idea. I’d just have to remember to bring it out for special occasions I think.
Are you planning a Yard Swing for your backyard wedding?
