Summer Swingin’

What could possibly be better than swinging in a hammock on a summer day? Swinging in a bed. This DIY pallet swing bed project is sure to take your afternoon naps to the next level of comfort, and is easy enough to tackle in a couple of hours. All you need are a couple of pallets (which can be found at your local hardware store or grocery store), some rope, and your handy power tools. The great thing about this project is you can customize the size to fit the size of the cushion you want to use – from a large floor pillow to a twin-size mattress – and the location of the swing.

Pro tip: Cover the mattress or cushion with a vinyl slipcover to protect it from moisture and bugs.
