the old garden chair...

I had these old garden chairs.... and I was about to throw them away when I had a brilliant idea of making one of them into a garden swing for my large birch tree!!! I put my handy-man-dad on the case, and a few days later I could swing the summer nights away....


He cut off the legs, added some new support (that I still need to paint as soon as the wood dries up!!!)


I bought some cheap ribbon and tied it to the chains for some extra colour and whimsy... They blow ever so pretty in the wind!


now if it would only STOP RAINING!!!!!!

It's adorable! I wish I had one like this at the lake cottage.

I love seeing things re-purposed, and who doesn't love a swing? I wish I had a handyman in my life...my hubby isn't at all, and my dad passed away 14 years ago. You can send your rain my way - we are in a drought! (USA - Illinois)

It's amazing how you made changes to that old garden chair. You just restored it perfectly. On the other hand, you might want to consider rattan furniture pieces for a new set. It would look good on your garden.
