Hanging Daybed Swing

How to build a hanging daybed swing

Hanging Daybed Swing

Ahh, a very relaxing hanging daybed! Is there anybody who doesn’t want to have this piece of furniture in their outdoor area?

Building a hanging daybed isn’t exactly a quick weekend project! But anybody who’s simply willing to squeeze in a couple of hours every day can make their own hanging daybed swing in a week! This DIY project doesn’t require any special tools or skills.

However, if you are thinking of taking on this project we recommend you consult a professional builder or carpenter (unless you already are one ;) ) to assess your ceiling joists first. It’s a necessary step to ensure that everything is strong enough to carry the weight of both the daybed and its occupants!

As long as you’ve sought advice from a professional and have taken your time in building a strong and sturdy daybed frame, you’ll be able to enjoy many relaxing and super-comfortable hours in your DIY hanging daybed swing.
