This Genius Mom Turned Her Kids’ Old Swing Set Into a Lounge for Grown-Ups

After dropping hundreds — if not thousands — of dollars on a backyard swing set, it just doesn’t make sense to chuck it once your kids outgrow it. Instead, take a cue from this genius blogger and transform it into a fun piece of backyard lounge furniture for adults.

Simply by installing some clever upgrades, DIY expert and contractor Brittany Bailey transformed her kids’ backyard swing set into a more adult-friendly piece, she explains on her blog Pretty Handy Girl. Now she can use it for years to come!

Before the overhaul, the structure was outfitted with swings and a slide. It also lacked any kind of aesthetic appeal.

After removing all the kid-friendly, brightly colored components, Brittany upgraded the structure by adding some inexpensive chair hammocks and sophisticated accessories like patterned throw pillows and a charming little side table. Now it’s a space that’s perfect for reading a book, taking an afternoon nap, or catching up with friends over a bottle of wine.


You could take this makeover one step further by adding some more accessories. Simply by hanging some string lights, transforming the ladder into a vertical planter or herb garden, and adding an outdoor chandelier, this piece could be a real country showstopper.

Once your swing set is ready to go, invite the girls over, and pour yourself a glass of wine — you’re never too old for some outdoor fun!
