So as you can see it was a bit weathered when it was time to be built into a swing. I’ve been wanting this to be built into a swing for quite some time, and I let it sit out in the rain, sun, and snow for around three years before the transformation began. Oops. 😆
I was lucky enough to get picture updates from the builder so I’ve chosen to share them with you all. He did a LOT of sanding, a LOT of cutting, and a LOT of painting (three-four coats to be exact)!
I am absolutely in love. I’m telling everyone that it’s for show only so no accidents happen.. but let’s be honest, my morning coffee sips will be had from this perfect and cozy swing.
