10 DIY Patio and Garden Swings

10 DIY Patio and Garden Swings

If you have a garden, back or front yard, a vacant porch, or patio, why not decorate it with a swing. I love to sit outside in the evening, especially when the weather is good. You can hang a pallet porch swing from the ceiling and enjoy a quite morning coffee. Dangle a pallet swing bench from a sturdy tree in the yard so the kids can enjoy the summer vacations. Making DIY garden projects for an inviting outdoor space is fun.
