If you happen to have some broken chairs lying around, DO NOT THROW THEM AWAY!!! Make a chair swing with them!!
Now, in my own humble opinion, the chairs do not have to match. Actually, it would give it more character to your chair swing if they didn’t.
You could use 2×4’s or 4×4’s to attach them to & then add the eye bolts and chains straight into them. Just BE SURE to hang it from a sturdy surface. If in the house, like this one, be sure to find the studs in your ceiling to hang it from. Do the same thing on the porch.
Also, if hanging outside, you’re going to want to seal your chair swing with an outdoor polyurethane. This one is indoors so, it is fine as is.
I hope you’re inspired to gather some chairs & make a DIY Chair Swing.
Happy building/crafting ~ Dawn
