a fun find...before and after


I forgot to show you my fun yard sale find from earlier in the summer.  I found this swing for $3.00.  I think it was meant for indoor use, but we have a lot of trees in our backyard, and I knew I had the perfect spot for it.   I love "toys" for the trees, because it encourages my kids to turn off the tv and get out and play.  It makes me happy when they climb the trees!  That's what kids should be doing, right?!  Anyway, I couldn't stand to have this swing stay a natural color.  I had to paint it white to pretty it up.  So I pulled out a can of white spray paint, and sprayed away.  Then I had my husband screw a heavy duty "s" hook (Is that what you call them?) into one of the branches, before we hung the swing.  It hangs in a quiet, little, corner of the yard complete with a canopy of trees...


the perfect "dreamy" spot to curl up and read a good book!


  1. what a perfect swing! I'm jealous of all your trees.You find the best deals and magically turn it to something amazing. Way to go

  2. PRETTY! Looks like the perfect place to sit, relax, and feel the warm summer breeze :)
