If your idea of relaxing outdoors is lying on a daybed or getting lulled to the gentle sway of a hammock then this DIY pallet swing bed is the perfect project for you. It’s easy, it’s cheap, and it’s great to have under a shade on pleasantly warm days.
Pallets are easy to access, it’s even free most of the time! Pick one where the timber is in very good condition and the pallet, well built. You will need a pro-grade rope, a place to hang your swing bed on, and a mattress that fits it. You can even add a backrest to it so you can sit back and relax on it.
Now isn’t this perfect for reading or relaxing on a lazy afternoon?
Go grab your favorite book and drink… and let the neighbors envy your awesome outdoor furniture! 😉
